Dear La Salle Academy Class of 2024:
As you complete the last month of middle school, you are probably starting to think about what your experience at La Salle Academy will be like. Many of our seniors had the same thoughts as you at this time four years ago. Fast-forward to today, and they have no regrets about their choice to attend La Salle Academy. They have made memories and friends to last a lifetime. And you will, too!
Please see the welcome video messages from some of our seniors:
We are excited to welcome you, and have some important updates about the start of the academic year at La Salle Academy.
Get Ready…Get Set…
Traditionally, we hosted a Cardinal Readiness Program in the summer with the goal of preparing our incoming students to meet the social and academic expectations we have at La Salle. Some students were required to participate because it was a condition of their acceptance to La Salle Academy. All students were invited and encouraged to be a part of this activity.
Because of the uncertainty regarding the guidelines for social distancing, and our concern for the health and safety of everyone, we created an alternative to Cardinal Readiness this year. Students who were accepted conditionally and informed they had to come to school in July are now fully accepted.
We call our new experience Get Ready…Get Set…, and every young man entering ninth grade at La Salle Academy is expected to participate from home. It’s free and parents are welcome, too!
Get Ready…Get Set…is a series of Zoom meetings scheduled to begin on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. Our Class of 2024 will be divided into small groups of about 15 students each for these sessions. A member of our staff will host each meeting. You will learn about various aspects of our school, have opportunities to ask questions, and meet some of your classmates virtually.
When the schedule is finalized, we will inform you via email about when and how to log in to Get Ready…Get Set… and go forward with your experience at La Salle Academy!
