Admissions Policy

All admissions to De La Salle High School are for one year at a time. At any time, the school administration reserves the right to refuse admission to former students.
De La Salle High School adheres to the Catholic High School Admission Process set forth by the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

All initial admissions are made through the Admissions Office. Initial admission involves the following steps:

  1. Completing and submitting the De La Salle Application Form along with the application fee.
  2. Having the applicant’s present school forward to the Office of Admissions an up-to-date academic transcript (including any standardized test scores).
  3. Once the Application Form, application fee, and academic transcript have been received, an admissions interview will be scheduled with a De La Salle interviewer, the applicant, and the student’s parents/guardians.
  4. Following final acceptance, the following documents must be on file with De La Salle at the time of registration:
    1. the final, complete and official transcript from the previous school,
    2. copy of the birth certificate,
    3. copy of immunization records,
    4. copy of Social Security Card, and
  5. International students must submit some proof of English proficiency.
  6. Because De La Salle students are drug-tested, transfer students (a student is considered a transfer when he/she enters De La Salle after the start of his/her ninth-grade year at De La Salle) will be tested, at their cost, as part of the admissions procedure, prior to their final acceptance. Any transfer student who tests positive for drugs will not be admitted to De La Salle.

Although the admissions committee makes a recommendation to the Principal and the Admissions Director regarding the admittance of a potential De La Salle student, the final decision to admit a student lies solely with the President, in consultation with the Principal and Admissions Director.
