Salesian High School, located in New Rochelle, New York, United States, was founded in 1920 as a private Roman Catholic secondary school for young men in grades 9 through 12. Owned and administered by the Salesian Society of St. John Bosco, a religious order of priests and brothers, Salesian High School is founded on Catholic philosophy and St. John Bosco's system of education, based on "reason, religion and kindness."
Salesian High School is an independent school within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York and is one of the many Roman Catholic secondary schools that are located in Westchester County, New York.
The school is located on the waterfront along Long Island Sound on the former estate of John Stephenson, the inventor of the horsedrawn trolley car. The Stephenson Mansion, a historic home, took seven years to build during the 1860s at a reported cost of $250,000. After Stephenson's death in 1893, the property passed through several hands before the Salesians of Don Bosco bought it in 1919. Today the mansion is the headquarters of the Salesian Order's Eastern Province, and is known as the Salesian Provincial Residence.
