Since 1903, Salesianum has educated young men in the example of the Gentleman Saint, Francis de Sales, who wrote: “Be who you are and be that well.”
This means that whomever he is, and whatever his skills and strengths, each student is guided towards becoming his own best self. Students come from over 100 primary schools in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland to take advantage of Salesianum’s unique approach to education, which focuses on intellectual development above all else, but emphasizes athletic, artistic and moral growth as cornerstones of a well-rounded Salesian education.
Students rise to the challenge of high expectations, receiving not only the finest education, but also lessons in strengthening their faith as they learn to be gentlemen in service to the world. Graduates leave Salesianum well prepared for college, but more importantly, prepared to contribute their gifts and talents towards makeing a positive and lasting impact on the world.

Upon graduation, Salesianum students join a network of over 16,000 alumni with leadership roles in every area of industry, from science to entertainment to military service. Prominent alumni include NBC 10 Anchor Tim Furlong ’92, President of Tufts University Anthony Monaco ’77 and Major General in the United States Army/ Delaware Adjutant General Francis D. Vavala ’65.
