300 years ago, Saint John Baptist de La Salle began his quest to redefine learning.

Together with a worldwide network of millions of Lasallian students and educators, we are proud to bring his spirit of love, care, service and excellence to students of the 21st century.

La Salle College Preparatory was founded in 1956 as a Catholic school for boys. Today, we serve the greater Los Angeles area as the only truly diverse and co-educational Catholic high school in Pasadena. Each and every day, we work to offer our community of curious and capable students opportunities that develop and nurture personal growth through exploration and discovery.

Whether engaging in a future-forward STEAM program or adventuring to a classic literary world for the first time, growing as a teammate on our championship-caliber athletic teams, volunteering for a meaningful day of service, or participating in our award-winning visual and performing arts programs, La Salle College Preparatory’s students receive the powerful mentorship and instruction that transforms wonder into excellence.

Perched atop our foundation of an incredible heritage 300 years in the making, we look to the future, inspiring and preparing our next generation of lifelong learners to leave a lasting, positive impact on their communities and on the world around them.

Welcome to La Salle College Preparatory, where young adults discover their path to lifelong excellence.
