Mission & Identity

St. John Baptist de La Salle, founder of the Brothers of Christian Schools, is the patron saint of teachers. In the tradition of his Christian Brothers, LANCE and LEaPs emphasize core Lasallian values in its own program mission:

  • Educating the poor and underserved through inspired and excellent teaching;
  • Ensuring caring, individualized attention to each student as a whole person;
  • Regarding teaching as a corporate and communal exercise; and
  • Contributing to the compassion and justice-seeking of each school in which one teaches
