SCHOOL DESCRIPTION
Since 1966, La Salle has been providing a quality, Catholic, college-preparatory
education to the students of the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area. La Salle serves a
socio-economically diverse student population; about 15% of this population is minority
and 30% are non-Catholic. Our student body is drawn from throughout the entire
Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area, from as far north as Ridgefield, WA and as far
south as Salem, OR. 16% of our students reside in the state of Washington.

La Salle is sponsored by the Brothers of the Christian Schools and is one of 1,600
Lasallian educational institutions located in over 80 countries worldwide. The Christian
Brothers were founded in 1682 by St. John Baptist de La Salle, an aristocrat in Rheims,
France. De La Salle was also a Roman Catholic priest and canon lawyer, who used the
whole of his inheritance to further the education of poor children, the children of 17th
century France’s artisan class. Named Patron Saint of Teachers by the Catholic Church in
1953, many characteristics of modern education that we take for granted, such as lessons
in common (instruction previously had occurred one-on-one, with tutors), a fixed class
schedule, fixed arrival and departure times, education in the vernacular (it had previously
occurred only in Latin), first appeared in De La Salle’s schools. However, what truly
made De La Salle the pioneer, the educational innovator that he was, was his key tenet,
that true teaching is rooted in an authentic love of students and that a truly effective
teacher-student relationship must be based on practical affection and mutual respect. This
core philosophy remains the foundation of De La Salle’s many contributions to education
and is a unifying characteristic of Lasallian schools worldwide.

MISSION STATEMENT
La Salle is a Catholic, college preparatory high school dedicated to creating a safe and
nurturing educational environment. Students are challenged to fulfill their spiritual,
academic and social potential in response to the demands of an ever-changing global
society. The school is especially committed to providing increased opportunities for
economically disadvantaged youth.
