Academic Programs


Required of all new students, Discovery helps students develop age-appropriate life skills, build substance abuse prevention awareness, and develop strong communication skills. Students focus on team building, anger management, assertiveness training, problem solving, conflict resolution and vocational exploration/educational assessment.

Senior Seminar

Required for graduation from DeLaSalle, our senior seminar helps students investigate their college and career options. Students learn how to complete job applications, they develop their resumes, and they participate in mock interviews with local businesspersons. Seniors also participate in life planning activities where they learn the basics of budgeting for the “real world” and develop a plan for their future. Community service is emphasized.

Missouri Option Program

 The MO Option program is an alternative educational option for youth between the ages of 17-2o who are without the number of credits required to meet requirements for graduation.

Students in the MO Option program attend classes on a reduced schedule and are required to work or complete 15 hours of community service per week.

If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more information about how to enroll in, please complete the questionnaire and someone from the DeLaSalle staff will contact you.


Holistic Services

For many students, the barriers to academic success lie outside of what happens in the classroom. We help them address those challenges to their education through individual and group counseling, drug/alcohol treatment and prevention, teen parenting education, and early child development.

Provided onsite and woven into our students’ educational foundation, our therapeutic approach prepares our students for their future and for success.




Graduation is a special event for students at DeLaSalle. Our students and their families work hard to earn their high school diploma, and we are excited to celebrate their success and their futures.
