CAREERS AT LASALLE SCHOOL

Become a Part of Our Mission

A career at LaSalle School offers opportunities for those seeking meaningful, impactful, mission-driven work. LaSalle School has more than 140 team members committed to providing community, association, and dignity to those whom we serve.

Lasallian is . . .a term to describe a ministry or person fulfilling the mission set forth by Saint John Baptist de La Salle. A Lasallian is one who can transform the general Christian call to discipleship into a personal vocation, living out in a specific way the call to make the teachings of Christ present in the world of today. The Lasallian vocation to compassion, commitment and togetherness comes in various ministries and programs of various shapes and sizes. It has already done so in the course of its history, and it is set to develop completely new forms to meet the needs of today.

Most Lasallians who choose to live their baptismal vocation by participating in the Lasallian ministry of education and evangelization recognized by the Church, are believers in Jesus Christ. However we readily recognize the many sincere women and men of other faith families  who center their professional and at times personal lives, on the founding Lasallian story. Lasallian is anyone (married, single, consecrated, ordained) who is personally committed to living the gospel values and working to provide a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor.
