As part of one of the largest educational networks in the world, Lasallian Education can be found in 102 schools and ministries throughout the United States and Canada.
Since 1680 educational institutions in more than 80 countries have been influenced by the vision and innovative spirit of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the patron saint of teachers.
Just as De La Salle went through a process of personal conversion, which made him face up to the full logic of his faith in Christ and the effects of applying the call to discipleship to his own life, a Lasallian is committed to the respect and reverence of others as valuable and important in the eyes of God. This leads to a view that the education of the individual is something supremely valuable and worthwhile for its own sake, not just for the convenience of society.
