Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year, a year during which De La Salle Institute promises to continue its 130-year-old commitment to provide a high school experience for all of our students that is second to none.
De La Salle Institute offers a vibrant Catholic and Lasallian charism, a strong and challenging college preparatory curriculum, exciting extra-curricular clubs and activities, competitive athletic programs, a quality faculty and staff, an amazing diverse student population, and a dedicated vision for continual growth that sets us apart from all other secondary educational institutions in the Chicago-land area.
What sets us apart? The De La Salle community is a unified and caring family of educators who strive to “touch the hearts” of all of our students as inspired by St. John Baptist de la Salle, the founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the patron saint of all educators. We are excited about the beginning of this school year as we partner with our families to provide enriching experiences for all of our students to encourage their spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical growth. The many and varied opportunities we provide will prepare our students for their great futures once they successfully complete their studies at De La Salle.
This is a great time to be a Meteor--a bright and vibrant light that will continue to shine for a lifetime because of the foundation built at De La Salle Institute! We are one body; we are one family; we are one De La Salle!
Best wishes for a very meaningful and rewarding 2019-2020 school year!
Diane L Brown, Ed.D.
