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, togo 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 area 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.’

*Due to concerns related to Covid-19, the 2020 Summer Scholars program will be held online.  Please see below for updated information.*
