Does Seton LaSalle Welcome Students Who Aren't Catholic?

Seton LaSalle is a Catholic High School that educates anywhere from 10% to 20% of students from other denominations and faiths. We welcome the diverse conversation in Religion classes produced from students from different religious backgrounds.

Our students like to say that "God is everywhere at Seton-La Salle."

That is our goal - to help students know God, interpret our values through the lens of Catholicism and apply those principles in life.

Prayer starts our day, so we can remember where our priorities lie. Our school community celebrates Mass twice a month and holds student-led spiritual retreats. Religion is a required class every year so students can understand the Bible and the underpinnings of Christianity. We believe revering God and recognizing that all are created in His image encourages respect and kindness among our student body. We require students to perform service and offer many opportunities to do so with their classmates such as volunteering with area soup kitchens, Special Olympics and the "Junior/Senior Prom" with nursing home residents.

No matter where you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here.

Are There A Lot Of Sports And Clubs Available?

Seton LaSalle offers 20 WPIAL Varsity sports. We are proud of our legacy of excellence in athletics that regularly produces Section Champions, WPIAL Champions and PIAA Champions. SLS was awarded the 2014 and 2015 "Best Athletic Program in WPIAL Class AA" by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. More importantly, our coaches impart our Catholic identity through Sports Leader by employing Virtues of the Week, mentoring and ceremony. Despite our level of achievement, our sports are accessible, even to athletes new to a sport, and many athletes play more than one varsity sport. To learn more about athletics, click HERE.

SLS offers more than 30 plus clubs, organizations and activities: Nationally-Ranked Vocal Group. Exceptional Forensics. High-tech Computer Technology Club. What is your interest? Guitar? Blogging?
