Academics

In alignment with Immaculata - La Salle High School's overall mission and vision we, as facilitators of learning, believe that concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math are inherently integral. We are committed to increasing STEAM literacy for all students and to nurture active, lifelong learners preparing them to be responsible, contributing members of society and global citizens who can identify and use the connections shared by these disciplines to help shape their lives and their community.
