The Co-curricular Program at De La Salle College is a fundamental component to achieving the goal in our mission statement of spiritual, intellectual, artistic, and physical growth for our students. Experiential learning is a vital part to character development and therefore we offer a wide range of activities for our students to participate in. Students are provided with opportunities in the arts, athletics, leadership, service, and special interest groups to expand their comfort zones and foster lifelong skills and friendships.
St. John Baptist De La Salle's vision of an educational community with faith and zeal is reflected in our athletic program. The school offers a large variety of individual and team sports spread out over three seasons to give students ample opportunity to get involved and compete against other schools in the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA).
Every student at the college is encouraged to participate in at least two extra-curricular activities per year. Whether it be performing upstage in a dramatic production, snapping photos for the yearbook, or working behind the scenes for one of the school's many service groups, every student finds a way to contribute to the "Oaklands" community.
