Academics Jackowiak, Colletti, Davidson, Bixman, the Stebeltons, the Maldonados… De La Salle teachers become your household names.

A full description of the curriculum may be found in the Curriculum Guide published annually. De La Salle offers three programs of study: the Honors Program, the College Preparatory Program, and the Lasalle College Preparatory…
