Why DeLaSalle?

Why should you choose DeLaSalle Education Center? Because we are more than a school.

We are an alternative to the traditional school.

A tuition-free charter high school in Kansas City, Missouri, DeLaSalle gives students a chance to improve their learning and life skills, stimulate their potential, and fulfill their promise.

We are unique.

DeLaSalle is Missouri’s only alternative charter high school dedicated to serving urban core students at risk of not graduating high school.  Our unique combination of small class sizes, wrap-around support services and workforce development programs give our students the tools they need to succeed and graduate.

We are an opportunity for success.

DeLaSalle gives our students another, and sometimes last, opportunity to complete their high school education. Students find success at DeLaSalle because we focus on, and believe in, them. In and out of the classroom, we guide young men and women toward self-sufficiency and self-reliance, helping them define their goals and achieve their dreams.

We take education personally.

We teach the whole child—not just the one who sits at a desk. Academically, emotionally, and therapeutically, our programs address our students’ life barriers to help clear their path to academic success.

We take education seriously.

We design a unique learning plan for each student focused on literacy and workforce development.

We are a community.

Students and parents, teachers and staff, donors and volunteers, civic leaders, business partners, board of directors –the community that surrounds, supports, and sustains DeLaSalle all believe that each and every one of our students deserves a quality education that fosters and stimulates his or her true potential.

We are more than a school.

We have to be. Our students and our community deserve it. Join us and help our students succeed.
