As traditional events like the prom (photo at left above), the senior class trip to Six Flags Great Adventure (photo at right above), in-person AP exams, and a senior breakfast make their return, our soon-to-be newest alumni anticipate their graduation ceremony at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and look forward to the realization of their plans for continued education. This extraordinary class has members who will study at selective colleges such as Stanford, Cornell (where more than one LSA graduate will attend!), Colby and NYU. They are sons of immigrants from the Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala, Nigeria and the Dominican Republic, respectively. Congratulations all around!
Incoming Cardinals made their first move into the life of our school when they and their parents joined us for a Welcome Dinner last Thursday night. A recent poll of the parents of our current students awarded 4.84 out of 5 stars to the statement, “I sense a healthy experience of community at La Salle that includes and nurtures my son.” A recent survey of our graduates recorded the highest score (4.81 out of 5) to “I am proud to be an alumnus of La Salle Academy.” It is encouraging that a new cohort of young men is poised to benefit from their time at La Salle as well.
I applaud and appreciate your interest in La Salle Academy and assure you of my prayers and best wishes.
