PROFILE OF THE COLLEGE


La Salle College, Ondo is specially founded to assist in the educational upliftment of Nigeria. It is one of several thousands of such institutions by private individuals and missionaries to save the falling standard of education in Nigeria. It is not that there are not enough schools in Ondo town, but the thirst for an institution with excellent academic record and a high moral standard of discipline, 


Teachers and structures that are committed to high standard of educational attainment and a serene environment in the face of growing decay and moral decadence in our schools. La salle College was founded to provide moral, scholastic and holistic education. 


La Salle College, Ondo was formerly novitiate training place of the Catholic De La Salle Brothers in Nigeria, since 1966, with two big Imposing storey buildings and a bungalow (which now serves as kitchen for La Salle College). It was in April 1999 that the Nigeria Sector Commission for Education of the De La Salle Brothers recommended that a Secondary School be established on our property known as De La Salle Centre, Ondo”. This initial recommendation came from former students of the Brothers from St. Joseph College, Ondo who wanted a quality school for their children and grand children. 


The college took off in September, 2003 with two temporary classrooms partitioned from one of the big storey buildings housing the Brothers. La Salle College is therefore a Private Missionary institution established by the (Catholic) De La Salle Brothers in Nigeria with full approval of the Superior General of the De La Salle Brothers and his council in Rome in June 2003. The Pioneer Principal Rev. Br. Peter Anifaloba, FSC (Late) named the school La Salle College, Ondo. La Salle College, Ondo was conceived primarily as a School Certificate Awarding Institution that:
