We Are Learners
A 174-year tradition. A 21st century learning experience. La Salle Academy is one of the oldest all-male college-preparatory Catholic high schools in New York City. Founded in 1848, we provide a progressive educational experience helping young men grow intellectually, spiritually, physically and emotionally. The educational tradition of the Brothers of the Christian Schools is committed to the core tenets of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the patron saint of teachers. We guide our students as they become young men respectful of social diversity and intellectual honesty. An open and inclusive Christian community based in the East Village, our school reflects the diversity and creativity of the surrounding community. We welcome all young men who wish to learn and succeed. This is a bold mission that calls for a deeply held commitment to the success of each individual student. La Salle is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
