About Us


LaSalle Intermediate Academy is designed to offer academic challenges beyond those required by the Indiana Academic Standards to highly capable fifth through eighth-grade students.  The Academy provides a rigorous, comprehensive academic program in all subject areas distinguished by the application of technology and the infusion of math and science throughout the curriculum.  The Academy is available to all intermediate students (grades 5-8) who meet the criteria for admission.  Enrollment will be controlled on a capacity and racial compliance basis.

LaSalle was constructed as a high school and opened in 1965. The last high school class graduated in 2002. The school was named after Robert LaSalle, or Sieur de LaSalle, a French explorer (11/21/1643-3/19/1687). He explored the Great Lakes region of the United States and Canada, the Mississippi River, and the Gulf of Mexico.
