John Baptist de La Salle said that the purpose of the Institute is to give a Christian education to the young and that for this purpose his teachers kept schools.
 
Our schools are, therefore, instruments to help us accomplish the purpose of the Institute.The Lasallian school is not just any school. It is a school with certain characteristics.
