La Salle Institute is an independent, Catholic college preparatory school serving young men and women in grades six through twelve.
La Salle Institute was founded by The Brothers of the Christian Schools in 1850 to serve the growing immigrant population coming into Troy, NY. In a caring, supportive environment it enables young men and women to grow in their relationship with God. It accomplishes this by deepening their faith through example, instruction and service. Academic success is achieved by providing a strong college preparatory academic program that stresses the academic growth of each young person. Our community encourages, challenges and supports each student's journey to reach their potential.
A La Salle graduate is a leader who reflects our motto of truth, honor and duty. Our graduates are young people of faith who strive to make a difference in their world.
