When families consider De La Salle Collegiate for their son(s) there are many factors they weigh. One that cannot be stressed enough is the impact De La Salle Collegiate has on its graduates over the course of their entire lives.
So often young men and parents become bogged down in the number of college acceptances, scholarship rates, IB certifications, etc., but a huge part of our Lasallian mission is preparing our students for life beyond academic studies. St. John Baptist de La Salle said we must provide “a human and christian education.” That is, we must go beyond providing just an academic education for our students. We must nurture their intellect, spirituality, morality, and help provide the personal foundation to guide them the rest of their lives.
When you listen to the stories of our graduates like Mr. Tony Lamerato ’02 and Mr. John Elkhoury ’02, you hear the same sentiments with different words. The reason their stories and so many other alumni have found such success is because of the foundation provided at De La Salle Collegiate.
In addition to success in their personal, spiritual, and professional lives, studies prove that there is a large financial incentive to attending a Catholic high school like De La Salle Collegiate. For example in the article “The Cash Benefits of a Catholic Education” the author explains that studies done by Michigan State and Oakland University demonstrated that those who graduated from Catholic high schools earned 18 % higher wages in their mid-30s and mid-50s than their peers in public high schools.

And remember, “It’s a great day to be a Pilot!”
God Bless and Go Pilots!
