It's more than four years. It's forever!
De La Salle Collegiate is a renowned Lasallian Catholic college preparatory school helping form exceptional young men who are centered on education, respect, faith, and inclusivity to positively challenge and impact one another, the greater community, and the future.
Math. Science. Faith. Discipline.
Here, we believe greatness is not a moment. It is an everyday commitment. Here, we help each other find the path. And stay on it. That’s more than an education. That’s a Lasallian education.
Academics. Athletics. Arts. Service.
Here, we believe that education is more than building oneself. It’s also about preparing to help others. We build the individual. We build our community. And we build our future. That’s more than an education. That’s a Lasallian education.
Rigor. Creativity. Expression. Brotherhood.
Here we believe in potential. Of ourselves, and of one another. It's a community, created to help the potential of the whole, and of the one.

The Pilot for a Day shadow-visit program gives future students the opportunity to experience the students, teachers, and traditions that make De La Salle Collegiate a unique academic community.
Shadow visits are for seventh- and eighth-grade boys, and are limited to one visit per student. Due to the high volume of requests, we can only accommodate a handful of students per visit day. Visits occur on a first-come, first-served basis.

Every year students and parents fret over the High School Placement Test. Some are concerned about preparing well enough to earn a scholarship, and others just want to ensure they perform their best. That is why we are excited to announce the brand new High School Placement Test Workshops.
Workshops are now two days long. Each workshop begins at 4 p.m. and is three-hours long.
Day 1: students will take a complete practice HSPT.
Day 2: students receive results of the practice test, and are then led through a series of lessons and strategies to help them score as high as possible on the test.
Our first workshop will be hosted at De La Salle Collegiate on Oct. 15 & Oct. 22. The second session will be held at St. Lawrence Catholic Elementary School on Oct. 16 & Oct. 23. We hope that by offering the course at St. Lawrence it will make it easier for families who live in Rochester, Washington Township, Shelby Township, Macomb, and Utica.
The workshops are limited to 60 students per session, so space is extremely tight.
Registrations are only done online through The Pilot Hangar.
