Two Faculty Members from La Salle College High School participated in the 2016 Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies at St. Mary's College of California, a Lasallian College in Moraga, CA. Mrs. Julia K. Maher, Director of Lasallian Mission & Ministry, completed her third and final year in the program while Mr. Michael V. McCabe '08, Religion Department Faculty Member, began his first year.
The Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies is an intensive Lasallian education and formation program that studies the life and work of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the origins of the Lasallian educational mission. Through an examination of the writings of De La Salle and an analysis of some modern educators, participants develop a deeper understanding of the Lasallian heritage and its influence on contemporary education and spirituality.

The Buttimer Institute is designed to inspire participants to delve more thoroughly into the Lasallian founding story and discover the basis of their vocation as educators. The program also seeks to deepen the participants' association for the Lasallian mission and provide skills to become catalysts in their own ministries. The Buttimer Institute is a three-year program. Courses are conducted for three consecutive summers, in two-week durations. Graduate credits are available.
Mr. Michael O'Toole, Principal, and Mr. Raymond Shay, Director of Web Technology, are two additional members of the current LSCHS community who have completed the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies.
