Alumni News

We are excited to launch a section on our website for La Salle Academy Alumni News! This page will maintain a career focus in order to celebrate the success of our alumni. We will also include obituaries that highlight the careers of alumni who have passed away.

While we are in touch with many alumni, we may not know of specific career moves and achievements happening for the thousands of men in our database, so we invite you to share this information with us. Report an alumni news tip by contacting Ms. Daria Coney at or 212-475-8940 ext. 301.
