Academics

As an independent Catholic secondary school founded by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales in 1903, Salesianum challenges young men through dynamic college preparatory and extracurricular programs to live as Salesian Gentlemen devoted to faith, community and service.
Our approach to academics is centered on the six pillars of Salesian Spirituality: Optimism, Liberty of Spirit, Gentle Strength, Little Virtues, Spiritual Friendship and a Universal Call to Holiness. As our mission statement clearly states, the spiritual health of our community is vital to our educational success. We believe that students reach their potential when high school is not reduced to a checklist of requirements; but rather, when a focus is placed on community, relationships and a sense of belonging.

Salesianum makes developing relationships with those we serve a priority in every philanthropic project and trip. We believe it is by truly getting close to those we serve that we best positioned to go forth to make a world, that is very much in need, a better place. Whether discussing historic literary works or today’s news headlines, students are required to analyze diverse perspectives, decisions and their impacts from a variety of lenses that place a particular focused on the marginalized. Our young entrepreneurs and critical thinkers, who seek to solve problems for the greater good, are given unlimited opportunities to pursue this calling through our robust Arts & Innovation curriculum. We are also home to award-winning music and fine arts programs that continue to enlighten young minds and theater productions that inspire souls. And, we are a lifelong, global, brotherhood formed by the timeless teachings of our patron saint, Francis de Sales. Salesianum School. Because life is about more than test scores.
