What does it mean to be Lasallian?

The word Lasallian originates from the name of the founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. De La Salle was a priest and canon at the city’s cathedral and in 1679, he was asked to help open a school for poor boys. That year marked the beginning of a ministry in which De La Salle would dedicate himself to conducting Christian schools and training teachers to serve in them. In time, his approach -- an apprenticeship model for teaching students, simultaneous classroom instruction, practical curricula designed for the children of the poor and working class, and systematic teacher training -- would revolutionize modern education. De La Salle died on April 7, 1719, with the last word s, "I adore in all things the guidance of God in my regard." In 1900, he was canonized a saint of the Roman Catholic Church and, in 1950, named the Patron Saint of All Teachers of Youth. Today, St. John Baptist de La Salle's extraordinary vision lives on. His schools are characterized by excellence in teaching, loving relationships between teachers and students, special attention to the marginalized, and devotion to each student as a child of God. The Lasallian spirit of faith in God and zeal for announcing the Good News of Jesus Christ is powerfully expressed in Lasallian educators' unconditional care and vigilance for their students and in their conducting of schools as places filled with God’s loving and saving presence.
