Integrity – a fundamental quality of being honest, fair, and having strong moral principals.

What makes The De La Salle School unique?

The De La Salle School is a tuition-free Catholic middle school in the Lasallian tradition for young men in grades 5 through 8. Our students are economically disadvantaged, many from troubled school districts and most are immigrants or sons of immigrants.

The De La Salle School receives close to 90% of its funding through individual, corporate and foundation gifts. We are an IRS recognized 501c3 tax exempt not for profit, and all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.  The De La Salle School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs.
The 64 young men who will attend The De La Salle School in the 2016-2017 school year, like all of their predecessors, are of limited financial means, but of unlimited hopes and dreams.

The De La Salle School is featured in Newsday’s Diocese of Rockville Centre Catholic Elementary Schools Guide, in Dr. Kevin Sheehan’s cover story:  “The Power of Hope and its role in Catholic Education.”  Click here for the full article:

Our Graduates Excel!

We are so proud of our Graduating Class of 2016. Each of our 15 graduates was accepted into a Catholic high school, after a competitive entrance exam. Our graduates from 2016 will be attending Kellenberg Memorial High School, Holy Trinity Diocesan High School, St. Mary’s High School, and Freeport High School.

We maintain contacts with our alumni who now number 147 from 11 graduating classes. Our intention is to ensure that each of our graduates earns his high school diploma, and our graduates currently have a 100% high school graduation rate. We currently have over 40 graduates in nearly 20 colleges and universities. This past June 2016, we were very proud to celebrate our second year of college graduates, from our 8th grade classes of 2007 and 2008: these young men graduated from Manhattan College, Molloy College, SUNY Farmingdale, and Adelphi University.
