Top 10 Reasons Parents Choose LaSalle Language Academy

Commitment to help each student achieve their potential in a school that reflects the diversity of Chicago with students from across the city.

Strong foreign language instruction, both at school and online study, with the opportunity to travel abroad in 7th or 8th grade for the language your child has studied. 

Every year LaSalle students are accepted into the top selective enrollment high schools in Chicago.  90% of 2018 graduates were admitted to their top choice high school, and almost all graduates attend one of their top two high school choices.

The school guides students with high behavioral standards to create an effective and supportive learning environment.  This includes active partnership with parents to reinforce behavior expectations. 

The school and Friends of LaSalle encourage volunteering and participation in a variety of events for the whole school community. 

Strong fundraising has given the school a new playground, technology such as Chromebooks for each student, and scholarships to assist families for study abroad and other activities.

Right at School offers before- and after-school options for students, very helpful for parents whose work schedule does not fit school hours. 

LaSalle students compete in Science Fair, History Fair, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Lego Robotics, Destination Imagination and Battle of the Books.

Students participate in school-wide events such as Orange Ruler, La Posada, Winter Assembly, Black History Showcase and Spring Assembly.

After-school opportunities include sports, music lessons, STEM activities, arts, language clubs, choir, and even cooking lessons.
