Freshman Welcome

Freshmen are introduced to the Link Crew during orientation in the school gym.

Welcome to De La Salle Collegiate! 

Nick Shimko and Steven McBride walk through the hallways as freshmen in 2018.

Thank you for saying yes to our invitation to join our community. Not only are you now a part of our school community, but you are also joining thousands of other young people around the world who are a part of the international Lasallian community. The founder of Lasallian education, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, was focused on offering students a transformative educational experience. I can promise you that if you remain open to the endless opportunities and possibilities that will come your way during the next four years, you will experience a transformation that will have a significant impact on your future.

I want to extend an additional word of gratitude to the parents and guardians of the Class of 2024. Thank you for blessing us with the opportunity to partner with you in the formation of your son. All of us at De La Salle are committed to do everything we can to help your son become the person that God is calling him to be. Additionally, there are numerous opportunities for you to get involved in our community. Please do consider joining our Dads Club or the Christian Brothers Auxiliary. Please do get involved in any way that you can – it will only enrich your De La Salle experience. 

On behalf of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, our Board of Trustees, our faculty, staff, administration, and the students we are blessed to serve, I thank you for joining our De La Salle family and welcome you to what I know will be an incredible four-year journey.  

Saint John Baptist de La Salle, pray for us!
Live Jesus in our hearts, forever!
