Personal Connection is Key to Quality Education

From the very first day, when teachers and administrators greet each La Salle High School student as they arrive with a welcoming handshake, it’s evident that a quality education starts with that personal connection, says Principal Aaron Marshall.
“We meet our families and students where they are, and we welcome them into our school. That only strengthens those relationships moving forward.”
The mission of this private Catholic high school, rooted in the teachings of St. John Baptist de La Salle, is to prepare young men to achieve their full potential in body, mind and spirit. La Salle students, staff members, parents and alumni are committed to working together to continue the legacy of a first-class high school.
What Marshall is most excited about this year, in correlation with the 200-member freshman class – the school’s largest since 2008 – is the number of different grade schools students attended.
“We’ve intentionally worked really hard to get our name out there, and that hard work has paid off,” he says.
Word of mouth seems to work best when building a growing network of support, says Jake Pucci, director of admissions.
“We have great faculty members and parents who spread the word throughout the surrounding communities. We’ve also been more strategic about where we place our billboards, so that people outside of Colerain and Green townships understand where La Salle is. We’re so conveniently located that no matter where you live in the Tri-State area, you can get here in 20 to 30 minutes.”
In addition to La Salle’s renowned academic, extracurricular and athletic opportunities, Marshall says the diversity of the student population is a true reflection of society and continues to serve as a magnet for more students and their families.
