A La Salle education goes far beyond what can be taught in books or within the confines of a classroom. La Salle’s faculty are teachers first, focusing on the development of the whole student—intellectually, personally, and spiritually. Students are engaged in research projects, introduced to the diverse people and places of the Philadelphia region, and encouraged to explore the world.
