Clubs & Activities
The mission of the Student Ambassadors Club mission is to encourage students to share their insights, experiences and values in a productive manner, which in return will aid in the development of leadership skills. It is a voluntary program, but members are expected to maintain involvement and give full effort at all times. Student Ambassadors provide new and prospective students exposure to the campus and to a “student’s way of life” through various events and activities on campus.
Student Ambassadors assist prospective middle school students in making an informed decision about choosing to attend La Salle Academy. All members of the club have joined because of their interest in promoting La Salle Academy’s academic programs and representing the academy at organized events. It is our duty as members of the La Sallian Community to participate in admissions events, meet new students, welcome incoming freshmen and organize various events.
- Recruit prospective middle school students during classroom presentations and at high school fairs
- Provide Personal Campus Tours
- Assist with Open House
- Assist with “Cardinal for a Day”

The Academic Support Center is a place of learning and adventure for the students at La Salle. Open daily from 7:30am until 4:30pm, it is a place for students to complete their homework, study, print, research, and explore. Two Lasallian Volunteers staff the room and provide tutoring in every subject. It’s the ideal place for students to get their homework done after school and build community.

Once a week, the Lasallian Volunteers from the Academic Support Center take a group of students on after-school field trips to explore all that NYC has to offer. Students have enjoyed trips to the Map Room at the New York Public Library, Pageant Print Shop, Economy Candy, and more.
