La Salle’s Dollars for Scholars raised $115,000 to support student scholarships and to keep tuition increases to a minimum for all families. Ensuring access to affordable, quality, Catholic education is a key priority of La Salle’s mission and the Dollars for Scholars paddle raise directly benefits this goal.
Next year, as La Salle launches its Mobile Learning Program, certain classroom spaces will take on new formats to transition to a 21st century learning environment. La Salle’s community recognized the need for funds to support this renovation and, as a result, nearly $27,000 was raised for the 21st century learning environment initiative.
Inspired by St. John Baptist de La Salle, La Salle Catholic College Preparatory develops students of faith, service and scholarship by providing a transformative education allowing students to realize their maximum potential and use their gifts to serve Christ and humankind.
La Salle optimizes financial and academic accessibility for students, especially the underserved, who desire a rigorous and relevant education preparing them for college and life.
The La Salle community inspires students to find their voice as global citizens, to put their faith into action and to lead exceptional lives of integrity, honoring the God-given dignity of all.
