(A Lasallian education stresses the responsibility of all students to attend to the development of a spiritual life and personal relationship with God. Frequent prayer and periodic liturgical celebrations invite the students to enter into rhythms of life appropriate for an adult believer. One of the most important dimensions of that life is service. Our students are required to give service to the needy each year, but their commitment to these activities, as seen in community outreach, service trips, and numerous charitable drives, goes far beyond requirements. It is an introduction to a way of life. The faculty takes seriously its responsibility to serve as models of both faith and zeal, the distinctive spirit of the Brothers’ Institute and the Lasallian family worldwide.)
