I am a 1990 graduate and have to say that this school prepared me for both college and what to expect in the real world. The dedication and discipline of the teachers and administration, such as the guidance counselors, helped me through a couple difficult semesters and prepare me for the work ahead in college. If it was not for being part of the Salesianum community, I would not have achieved the goals that helped me succeed today. I know that the school today is stronger and more well equipped with resources than when I attended. The facility is state of the art for learning as well as extra-curricular activities.
As an Alumni ('08) I loved this school. The classes and the overall atmosphere in this school were amazing. The teachers are great and are there to help you. They will stay after school and help you with your work. The sports teams are great. Yes it's an all guys school but you have Padua and Ursuline right down the street. You are able to take classes there and they take some classes at Sallies.
Do your son a favor that he will carry with him the rest of his life: investigate, tour, visit, and then enroll him in this school. You and your son will be grateful for the sacrifice. It will pay dividends to future generations.
As an alumni ('01), I have to say Sallies is a darn good education. College was a breeze because of how well I was prepared. If you are into sports, Sallies has a great athletic program with nationally ranked soccer, track, and swimming teams. Their football and baseball programs have also dominated the state titles recently. At Salesianum, the teachers, parents, and administrators are all very active in a student's education. Sallies is not only one of the top schools in Delaware, it provides the best education dollar for dollar in the entire state.
Outstanding academic school with nationally ranked sports teams. This school teaches boys to become young gentlemen! Salesianum students form a lifelong bond and always help a fellow Salesianum graduate when they need it most. Parents come together to form a strong support system for the boys. The school forms a great learning environment and prepares its students for college by challenging them to work hard and never quit! A Salesianum education prepares the young men for life after school.
This school is the best in the tri-state area, hands down. I have had the priveledge of sending 4 sons to Sallies and I truly believe I have given each of my sons a gift that will last a lifetime. Tuition is worth every cent.
Being a former 'Sals gal' :), I can honestly say that there is absolutely nothing I can say bad about the school. I only wish that my parents could have afforded to get me through to graduation, however, I had to finish up the last 2 years in a public school (due to financial difficulties).
Best school in the region to send your son for academics and extracurriculars.
Without a doubt, one of the most demanding academic programs in the state, if not the nation. If you want your son to be challenged academically and prepared for college, Salesianum is the place to go.
