As a DeSales alumni, I proud to say my educational experience there prepared me for college and the business world beyond. In addition the faith and values taught are still very much in my thoughts and actions everyday!

I was so very fortunate to be educated side by side with some of the brightest young men I have ever encountered. Moreover, the educators were equally top notch.

Faith, Brotherhood, Tradition are not words....it’s WHO WE ARE!

Can the Big D fight!
DeSales High School is a small Parochial school which has students of diverse religious beliefs. The size of the student body allows for a greater interaction with each other, "Family." Teacher to student ratio. Teachers that are always willing to go those extra steps to work with students. The technology provided for and available to the students. DeSales is a "STEM" certified school, not just one or two programs. The sports and extracurricular activities available to the students. The "Standards" the students are held to.
