Notre Dame de La Salette Boys Academy is a traditional Catholic boarding school founded in 2005 by the Society of St. Pius X.
Located in the farmland of east central Illinois, La Salette Academy provides a strong religious, academic, and physical formation in an immersively Catholic environment.  Despite the school’s limited enrollment of under 100 students for optimum class size, La Salette’s quality facilities and sports programs rival that of much larger schools.  To learn more, select one of the links above.

Our Lady of Fatima

On October 13th, the 99th anniversary of the great miracle of the sun in Fatima, Portugal, a beautiful statue of Our Lady of Fatima was blessed and placed in a hand-carved niche in the 8th grade hallway.  The statue was presented to the Academy by the Class of 2015 as their class gift.  The Class had chosen this title of Our Lady for themselves during their years at the Academy.  At the conclusion of Benediction, the Litany of Loretto was intoned and the entire Academy processed by torchlight to the place of the blessing.  A decade of the Rosary was said for the members of the donating Class.



On the first day of the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary, the Academy headed to Saint Mary of the Woods in Terre Haute, IN for a pilgrimage. Stopping at the shrine to Our Lady of Fatima (Joyful), the cemetery for the Sisters of Providence (Sorrowful) and the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes (Glorious), the entire 15 decades were prayed. The short walks in silence between locales provided moments of meditation and reflection on the beautiful grounds.


Champions, again!

For the 4th time in 12 years, the Lions of La Salette have captured the cross country championship at the North Vermillion Invitational. The team was led by seniors Patrick Martin and the Roth twins, James and Matthew. The Lions placed first with 43 points, defeating the champion of the last two years, Seeger High School of Indiana, who scored 52. The other varsity runners, in order of finish, were freshman Daniel Crouse and seniors Jacob McDonough, Anthony Halligan, and Jake Schwendeman.


2016-2017 Academic Year Begins

We are off and running! It was nice to see so many friends and alumni at Opening last weekend. As usual, we began the year with a Solemn Mass of our dear Patroness and with a spiritual recollection for the boys. The reading at lunch during the silent recollection appears below. It provides a glimpse for you of the spiritual nourishment the Academy provides, and—more importantly—offers benefit for your own soul. This reading is a beautiful summary of the necessity of being “deep” and not shallow in the practice of our holy Faith and the life of prayer. Pictures of the Opening also appear below.

Please keep us in your prayers as we set out on this wonderful voyage of formation—forming boys into Catholic gentlemen!
