Mission and Values Statements

Mission Statement

Through a dedicated and capable community of staff and associates, inspired by the faith and vision of Saint John Baptist de LaSalle, LaSalle School provides therapeutic, educational and supportive services designed to accomplish positive, personal growth and lasting change in the lives of youth and families in need.


Values Statement

At LaSalle School, we are committed to working with youth who are at jeopardy as a result of serious concerns for safety, well-being, and permanency. For more than a century and a half, we have looked into the eyes of children to assure them they will be well cared for and their needs will be met regardless of the circumstances that brought us into their lives. Within the therapeutic relationships we strive to create, lasting change is possible because children and their families experience stability, build upon their strengths, and find reasons to be confident and optimistic about their futures.
