Higher Education Initiative
The La Salle Explorer is more than just a mascot. Being an Explorer is our way of life. We teach our students how to blaze their own paths, to go forth into the world with certainty and purpose, and to explore relentlessly as they become the people they want to be.
Through La Salle’s Higher Education Initiative, the Explorer educational experience is available to talented and promising high school students. Our many academic programs allow eligible students to earn college credit while simultaneously attending high school. Participating high school students don’t just get head starts on their college educations. They also explore college life by learning from college professors in the company of college students.
La Salle University is a member of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP), an organization with the goal of ‘advancing quality college courses for high school students.’
