Lasallian Association of Secondary School Chief Administrators (LASSCA) fosters and preserves a cooperative spirit among the chief administrators of secondary schools in the Region (RELAN). It establishes a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action whereby the leadership of the member schools among the region collaborate in the promotion of the Lasallian educational mission. Each year LASSCA holds a three day gathering, planned by chief administrators for chief administrators, to explore an important educational leadership theme in detail, as well as to share best practices and innovative ideas.

The goal of Lasallian Social Justice Institute (LSJI) is to promote the continuing process of conversion to solidarity with persons in poverty, and to provide an authentic response to the Gospel and our Lasallian vocation. It is designed to be experiential, educational, creatively practical, and reflective. LSJI seeks to help participants draw closer to the world of the poor in order to be evangelized by them. LSJI embodies the Lasallian commitment to association for the educational service of the poor and the rights of children.

Twinning is an initiative of the De La Salle Christian Brothers (Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools) that encourages Districts which are financially able to aid those most in need. In the Lasallian Region of North America (RELAN), middle and secondary schools in United States and Toronto are twinned with 14 ministries in four countries in the Lwanga District of Africa: Kenya, Nigeria, Eritrea and Ethiopia. While the RELAN schools help support the Lwanga ministries financially, the students also build relationships as brothers and sisters in the Lasallian family to share challenges, accomplishments, stories and experiences.

International Programs

(hosted by International Council of Young Lasallians)
September 21 (United Nations International Day of Peace) – October 21

Spring Into Action

(hosted by International Council of Young Lasallians)
March 15 – April 30

The principal themes of Lasallian formation include community, commitment, charism, the founding story, spirituality, pedagogy, and mission. From webinars, spiritual retreats, and single and multi-day professional development workshops and programs, Lasallians are invited to learn more about the Lasallian educational mission, and deepen their role in it.

Inspired by Jesus Christ’s experience with the Apostles and by the Founder’s life with the Brothers, Lasallians associated for the educational mission can participate in a number of formation processes and programs that transmits the Institute’s rich founding sources and develops the personal and professional qualifications needed to meet the challenges of the Lasallian mission. Associating with the Lasallian mission requires integration of the fundamental elements of the Lasallian charism in the personal, community, and professional life of a Lasallian educator.
