La Salle College High School is an independent, Catholic, college preparatory school for boys located in Wyndmoor, a community in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States, outside Philadelphia within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The school is staffed by a lay faculty and the Christian Brothers. Its sports teams compete in the Philadelphia Catholic League and now also participate in the PIAA.
La Salle was founded in 1858 as St. Michael's School at Second and Jefferson Streets. It then became the Christian Brothers Academy. In 1863 it became the preparatory school to La Salle College (now La Salle University). The prep school and college shared the same campus up until the 1960s. In 1982 they formally became two separate institutions.
