La Salle Works

Internships give students an invaluable real-world experience. And they’re not just for college students. La Salle Works is a paid and unpaid internship/apprenticeship program that is available for all of our students. By dedicating themselves to this program, students earn an amazing opportunity to pursue their interests and prepare themselves for college and the professional world. La Salle Works teaches students how to prepare for a job interview, produce quality resumes and develop personal networking skills.

The internship program extends into the summer as well. Through the National Hispanic Institute, students have the opportunity to attend a week-long leadership camp at Villanova University. Our young men are also placed in some of the top law firms and government agencies in New York City, including Leahy & Johnson P.C. and the Office of NYC Councilman Antonio Reynoso ’01, respectively.

For more information, contact the La Salle Works Director, Ms. Stacy Giancaspro at sgiancaspro@lasalleacademy.org.

La Salle Works Participation Guidelines

The student placement process will be competitive. Participation in this program will be judged based on several factors including personal character, work ethic, and overall initiative. The opportunities listed in this guide were made possible because of the hard work and generosity of the friends, alumni, and family of La Salle. As a result, the same level of dedication and respect is expected if you decide to participate in this program.

Students must consult Ms. Giancaspro before formally applying for any opportunity.

Even with parental permission, a thorough background check will be done to review a student’s record of behavior and grades for all years at La Salle Academy. Any participation will be based on the La Salle Student/Parent Handbook policies on academic eligibility and behavior as well as the discretion of the program director.

La Salle Academy Student/Parent Handbook Policies

Students must obey all outlined rules and regulations within the La Salle Academy Student/Parent Handbook.

Academic Eligibility – Extra-Curricular Activities

Participation in extra-curricular activities is a privilege granted by the learning community to students in good standing both academically and behaviorally. Therefore, in order to participate in extra-curricular activities at La Salle Academy, students must maintain certain academic standards. Any student with two or more credits of failures in a quarter may not participate in any after-school activity until he is passing his courses. His eligibility status will be reviewed by the Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs (APAA)/Director of Guidance at the next progress report. Any appeal due to special circumstances must be made directly to the Principal whose decision will be final.

Behavior in Public

La Salle Academy students are very visible in the local community. They are required to exhibit proper conduct both before and after school. La Salle Academy students in public are often well known and highly regarded by many people. Therefore, students have definite responsibilities for their personal conduct and appearance. Unbecoming behavior in public areas or on private property reflects negatively on our students, their families, and our school. Misconduct of this nature will be considered a serious violation of student responsibility and will be handled accordingly.
