Overview

Your journey begins here - Welcome to La Salle!

At La Salle College Preparatory, we have been educating students in the greater Pasadena area to Learn, Serve, and Lead for over 60 years. The roots of that special tradition stretch back more than 300 years to our founder St. John Baptist de la Salle and the Christian Schools he created with his fellow educators in France. De la Salle set a clear mission for his schools: they were to provide a spiritual and human education to the young, especially the poor.

We continue that mission today and stay true to the spirit of our founder by constantly changing and evolving to best serve the students entrusted to our care at this time and in this place. We can proudly and confidently say that La Salle’s academic and co-curricular programs are of the highest quality. We offer 21 AP courses, giving even the most academically gifted students ample opportunity to push themselves and be challenged. With courses ranging from forensic science, introduction to law, and digital game design, we give the teens entrusted to our care the opportunity to discover, grow, and learn about the world and themselves as they transition into young adults.

Learning does not only take place in the classroom. It takes place on the field, the court, the stage, behind the camera, and in the lab. We are proud of our co-curricular programs that give students the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom to real-life situations and become explorers and innovators. For some students that means debating public policy with speech and debate, creating a robot in our STEAM program, or traveling throughout the nation and world representing La Salle as part of our Academic Decathlon team. For others that means competing as part of our championship athletic program or performing with our music, theatre or dance programs.

All of our students have the opportunity to find and pursue their passion while they are here. They do that in a setting that is diverse in every way. We are proud of our co-ed, ethnically and socio-economically diverse environment that reflects our shared world. We work to expand our students’ understanding of the world even further through a dedication to meaningful service-learning at every grade level. We hope that you continue to learn about La Salle College Preparatory, its programs, students, and faculty. As you do, we believe you will find what makes La Salle so special and why so many students, alumni, and parents are so proud to be part of the Lancer Family.
