La Salle College is an independent Christian school, immersed in the Catholic tradition, which educates boys and girls from Grade R through to Grade 12, by offering a balanced curriculum in preparation for the IEB National Senior Certificate Examination. La Salle is situated in Discovery on the West Rand of Gauteng.

The College was founded in 1966 to provide an ideal environment for learning and personal growth. Today the school still offers a learner-centred, holistic education in an environment of genuine caring, companionship and respect.

A Lasallian education is a lifelong foundation for success in tertiary education and prepares the young person to be a 21st century global citizen, who will seek to take care of those in need, as well as the environment in which they find themselves.

I invite you to browse through our website and to contact us for further information.

God bless you
