Construction of the Main Building

In February 1955, the construction of La Salle College Preparatory was assured when the Pasadena City Planning Commission reinstated a zoning variance that had expired in 1951.

In November 1955, construction began on the School’s main building. The building was described as a contemporary three-story structure of reinforced brick and concrete. The building would include eight classrooms, chemistry and physics laboratories, mechanical drawing and typing rooms, library, book store, audio-visual room, cafeteria, locker room and offices. Facilities would also include an athletic field and track. The Brothers’ residence and chapel were built before the opening of the School.
