La Salle In the City

La Salle In the Citypng

Designed to enrich the cultural and educational experiences of all students, La Salle in the City is an extraordinary action-based learning program unique to our school. La Salle in the City uses New York City and other key locations “as the classroom.” Students explore educational sites such as museums, sporting arenas and musical venues, where they engage and participate in the respective site programs. These trips are not limited to New York; our students have traveled to Washington D.C. and New Orleans.

Curriculum-Based Experiences

La Salle’s juniors travel to Salem, Massachusetts to visit several museums that tie in perfectly with the English and History syllabus for juniors. Upperclassmen interested in finance visit the New York Stock Exchange. Students interested in sports management spend a day at New York’s famous pro sports stadiums or the National Basketball Association headquarters in midtown Manhattan. La Salle students also have the rare opportunity to participate in the FDNY’s Firefighter for a Day Challenge at the Fire Academy on Randall’s Island every year.
