At La Salle, our partners enhance the academic experience inside and outside the classroom. La Salle is connected to several top colleges and universities, including engineering powerhouse The Cooper Union, our Lasallian affiliates, Manhattan College and La Salle University, as well as St. John’s University. We also have unique relationships with two New York City high schools, including St. Joseph High School, one of the finest all-girls Catholic college preparatory institutions in downtown Brooklyn, and The Abraham Joshua Heschel School, a Jewish Day school on the Upper West Side. And we are proud to call Microsoft our technology partner, who provides us with a sophisticated framework for our tablet program.
3rd Street Music School Settlement
La Salle partners with the 3rd Street Music School Settlement just steps away from our campus. The nation’s longest-running community music school, the 3rd Street Music School Settlement provides our students with music instruction at every ability level.
The Abraham Heschel School
Our students gather several times a year for different activities that help foster unity between our two faiths. Students visit the United Nations and the Holocaust Museum, as well as join together in special guest-speaker presentations.
The Cooper Union
La Salle’s neighborhood partner, The Cooper Union’s Albert Nerken School of Engineering drives our esteemed STEAM (STEM with the Arts) program. Students in every grade have the opportunity to become steeped in STEAM curricula through several initiatives: Summer STEM Program, The STEM Days Program, STEM Saturdays, The Saturday ART Program, and the High School Innovators Program.
La Salle University
This top Lasallian liberal arts institution is developing a dual-credit program that will allow La Salle’s students to earn college credit while attending high school, beginning as early as junior year. Dual credit students will have the opportunity to take college-level courses taught by fully credentialed adjunct and full-time LSU faculty during the summer and/or online.
LSU hosts La Salle each year when our students travel to Philadelphia. Through our La Salle in the City program, students explore “The City of Brotherly Love” to learn our nation’s history. And every May, our math athletes tour LSU before they enjoy a Phillies baseball game.
Manhattan College is developing a dual-credit program that will launch in fall 2016. Under the guidance of Manhattan College, students will be offered new elective courses, including sociology, psychology and honors politics. Also, Manhattan College’s Office of Campus Ministry coordinates annual retreats on campus for La Salle’s students.
This leading global technology provider powers La Salle’s Tablet program. Every incoming freshman receives a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 that is utilized in a variety of ways to enrich the classroom experience. A Microsoft team provides La Salle with intense training on how to incorporate learning apps, online educational videos, e-textbooks and other tools.
St. John’s University
One of the largest Catholic universities in the country recently opened a satellite campus on Astor Place, just blocks away from La Salle. The partnership will focus on adding business courses to our elective offerings for upperclassmen.
St. Joseph High School
This multi-year partnership continues to evolve with many shared opportunities. SJHS students participate in all of our Cooper Union programs, senior prom, parade activities, college fairs, annual Art Expo and Career Day. We are also planning a back-to-school hackathon in January 2017, musical play in Spring 2017, and joint trips to Salem, Mass., Washington D.C. and Madrid, Spain.
Through a unique partnership with Fuel Education, an online education program, La Salle’s curriculum has been enhanced with additional courses in English, Math, Science and History/Social Sciences, world languages, including Latin, German, Chinese and Japanese, career-building electives, such as Astronomy and Criminal Justice, and credit recovery courses. These courses are available to all students at no additional cost.
