DeLaSalle Program

St. John Baptist de La Salle, the patron saint of teachers, strongly believed that ALL people, especially the young, have an inherent dignity from being created in the image of God, and that education was the means of developing that inherent dignity. Cardinal Newman wholeheartedly agrees. Since 2012, Cardinal Newman High School has been offering of The DeLaSalle Program, a full-inclusion program for cognitively challenged students in the 7th through 12th grade. Students involved in our program perform academically between the second and sixth grade levels, initiate simple written and verbal expression, interact socially with others and work in group situations. They function with minimal distraction to themselves or others, and they follow the high behavioral standards of Cardinal Newman School. If you are interested in our program, please print and complete the forms below. Once the application material is submitted, we will schedule a meeting with you, observe your child in his or her current school setting, and consult with the educational professionals who are familiar with his or her strengths and academic needs. Then, together with the principal, we will decide the best course of action. We look forward to meeting you soon.
