Discover the DeSales Difference

DeSales really is different. There's a positive spirit and vibe here that's difficult to describe, but easy to appreciate.

Thanks to our Salesian identity, our campus is infused with a positive, upbeat attitude and a belief that significant results come from small actions. It's a place where we encourage and prepare you, to quote our patron saint, "To be who you are and be that well."

☀️Summer is a great time to explore all DeSales has to offer. A campus or virtual visit can be a great way to learn more about DeSales, and it lets us get to know you better, too!
