“By the care you take of your students, show that you have a real love for them.”
-- St. John Baptist de La Salle
Families from across the Portland metro area entrust their greatest treasures--their children--to us because they know we will care for them as our own. Care for their spiritual growth, their socio-emotional development, their career readiness, and, of course, their academic success are our sacred priorities at DLSNC.
Through their participation in theology classes, daily prayers and reflections, school masses, service trips, and a range of retreats, our students deepen their understanding and appreciation for the sacred and spiritual. Our Lasallian charism and focus on Catholic Social Teaching instills in them the love, compassion, and empathy that our world needs. Our students can further their spiritual formation by participating in retreats such as "Called and Chosen," a vocation retreat hosted at the Russian River, whose goal is to help students grow in their commitment to faith, service, and community.
Our comprehensive Corporate Work Study Program prepares our students in real world settings. Students not only gain valuable job skills and knowledge, they begin building networking communities that can be instrumental for future career options. We are fortunate to have over 40 work study partners, who love our students, our school, and our community.
Our rigorous academic program surpasses state and public school standards with every student obtaining four years of math, science, theology, English, two years of Spanish, and Corporate Work Study credits. In addition, students select from many STEAM electives and have the opportunity to earn college credit through dual credit or AP classes. With the dedication and support from our highly qualified teachers, knowledgeable counselors, and dedicated Academic Resource Center staff and tutors, our students are able to cope with challenges and learn in a nurturing environment that takes into account their academic and socio-emotional needs, while being encouraged to always strive and reach further.
Becoming a student at De La Salle North Catholic means being welcomed to a Lasallian family that extends across the United States and beyond. A family that cares about you, cares about all aspects of the wonderful you you are.
