Anastasia Quirk, New School Principal- She is a very compassionate and caring educator and administrator dedicated to supporting all of the students, faculty and staff. She is hard working and knows every single student in the building by name. I so appreciate her support on a daily basis.

This school is about average for schools in the city of Louisville--WAY too much emphasis on athletics, which unfortunately, is also the standard at catholic men's schools in this city. Follows very primitive "tradition" of allowing upper class men to bully lower classmen and also utilizes sadly outmoded disciplinary techniques. Called "judgement under God"--students stand in the hall, facing wall for 45 minutes if found to be breaking rule--and this could be anything from wearing wrong socks, to watching YouTube in class, to plagiarizing. I think God would be much more thoughtful in handing out punishments for these infractions.....our son transferred elsewhere and is flourishing and MUCH happier this year....and as a result, doing MUCH better! If your son is very athletic this might be a good fit....or if he's accustomed to the catholic school mentality...otherwise I would think twice, especially for this price!

DeSales is awesome! It's a place where you can "Be who you are and be that well" (St. Francis DeSales). With the football championship last year and the new stadium on the way our athletics are off the charts. Academics are amazing too; many successful Governor's Scholars and even nationally honored students. Clubs are very inclusive ranging from Pep Band, to Outdoors (CABO), to Campus Ministry, Academic Team, Peer Leaders, Diveristy Club, Intramurals, and all the Academic Honor Societies. All in all, DeSales is the best place in Louisville for a guy to spend 4 years of his life. They strongly empower and embody their ideals of faith, brotherhood, and tradition and encourage all to stand up, stand out, and stand proud. As someone who attended private elementerary and middle school, and one year of public high school, I strongly urge any guy to shaddow and consider us. Don't let distance be a problem, we have a bus! God bless!

I had a son graduate this year and am very proud of the results. The school was very supportive and provided a nurturing environment of which to prosper. My son was awarded several thousands of dollars to attend college. He will go on to play football and eventually join the military to pursue aviation.

DeSales High School is an all male school that offers small environment where individual learning styles are taken into consideration. The small environment also allows for students with learning differences to recieve accommodations in the regular classroom to meet thier learning needs. DeSales won the 2007-2008 Beacon of Hope Award from the Learning Disabilities Association of KY for the non specialized school to meet the needs of students in inclusive situations.

My son graduated from DeSales in 1993. I think it was the perfect school for him. Instead of being a 'small fish in a large pond', he was able to fit in well, and eventually establish himself as a leader in his class. He had no trouble being included in extra-curricular activities. You don't have to be Catholic to attend, but good moral values are stressed to all students, by all the teachers. Strong in academics & extra-curriculars. The teachers are all very caring, and act like a substitute parent while the boy is away from home. Well worth the money spent. Highly recommended.

We have had 2 sons graduate from De Sales, and we feel we could have not sent them to a finer school to change them from little boys into fine young men. The faculty is dedicated to preparing them for the rest of their life, be it college, the military, or the work force. If we had 20 more sons, they would all go to De Sales!
