Our Mission

To engage our students in education that prepares them for learning, work, and life after high school. Every student will graduate with a diploma and market value asset.


We are a school that serves all students.  Our nationally recognized Freshman Academy allows 9th graders to learn in a safe community.  They will take academic risk and grow with a dedicated team of teachers.  Our goal is that every 9th grader is on-track to graduation by the end of their first year of high school.  

An On-track student is more likely to graduate in 4 years.  Being On-Track and On-Time to graduation is important for every student at DeLaSalle Education Center and Kansas City.   Our school specializes in getting every student to graduation.  In addition to graduation students  will graduate with a high school diploma and a market value asset that makes them stand out in both college and career fields.
