That means you can personalize your schedule and courses in a Christian environment. 82% of our faculty members have earned advanced degrees.
In 2018, Seton LaSalle was voted the best private school in the south Pittsburgh region by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette readers.
In the fall of 2016, Seton LaSalle opened an Innovation Lab, as part of our STREAM Initiative to build upon the school's excellence in Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math. Our students have access to 3D printing, a soldering table, a production studio outfitted with professional equipment and a computer lab built to accommodate full classes, all within our Innovation Lab.
Each student is issued a Google Chromebook upon entering Seton LaSalle at no additional cost. Technology is made readily available to students and faculty including WiFi throughout the building and SHARP Aquos Boards or SMARTboards in every classroom. We focus on collaborative learning through Google products shared among students for projects, such as Google Docs. Many textbooks are offered online. Students' Chromebooks pair seamlessly with the Google JAMboard in our Kay Murdy Media Center, which allows students to collaborate easily and efficiently, casting their Chromebook projects to a larger touch screen.

"Best Athletics Program in Class AA WPIAL 2015 and 2014" - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Not only do we have a legacy of winning at the Section, WPIAL and PIAA levels, but we insist on Christian character with a program called "Sports Leader." It emphasizes traits of integrity and how to apply them in competition, training and life. Our coaches believe in shaping godly men and women. We have amazing results! Look at the banners covering our gymnasium walls. Look at the Division I athletes succeeding in college - in their sports and academics. Above all, our sports are inclusive. We welcome athletes new to the sport and provide training to allow them to excel. Being Class AA allows more athletes to experiment with one, two and even three varsity sports.

Our goal is to help students come to 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. All students at Seton LaSalle give back to the community through service hours in student-initiated projects. Through these experiences, students see beyond themselves and invest in others with a sense of service that comes from within.
Seton LaSalle is a school that embraces and educates students from many denominations and faiths. We welcome the diverse conversation in religious classes produced from students from varying religious backgrounds and beliefs. Nurturing moral and spiritual development alongside academic excellence is the basis for a well-rounded education, combining lessons learned in the classrooms, on the field or stage, and in the chapel.
No matter where you are in your faith journey, you are welcome here.
Our students and alumni are proud to call themselves Rebels.
