20/20 Club

20/20 Club

Ever hear the saying hindsight is 20/20?

We all have times in our life we can look back on and think I wish I could have done that differently. One of the most influential moments in many lives is the growth we experienced in high school.  If you were able to go back and change something about your high school life, would you do something different?  I think each of us would. 


The 20/20 club is a group of individuals who want to be the “glasses” for the graduates of The De La Salle School to guide them in seeing how bright their futures can be. CLICK HERE to support our Graduates.

Tidings From Brother Thomas

Dear Friends,


New York State Champions!  How great it was Sunday 16 March to have one of our four-man teams recognized as first in New York State and another merit second place ranking.  What did they do?  They participated in the Future Problem Solving Program International State Bowl at Molloy College.  Future Problem Solving Program International (www.FPSPI.org) stimulates critical and creative thinking skills, encourages students to develop a vision for the future, and prepares students for leadership roles. Future Problem Solving Program International involves thousands of students annually from all fifty states as well as Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. The program was established in 1983 by creativity pioneer, Dr. Paul Torrance, to challenge gifted students around the globe to think critically about future problems that they will face in their lives.

The De La Salle School

The De La Salle School is a scholarship Catholic Middle School for young men in grades 5 through 8.  Most of our students are immigrants or children of immigrants. We provide a quality education, and nurture each student's growth, spiritually, academically, socially and physically in collaboration with their parent(s) or guardian(s). We emphasize respect, responsibility, leadership and service, thereby preparing the young men to be caring citizens of the world.  

We share in the LaSallian heritage, and are rooted in 330 years of the De La Salle Christian Brothers tradition of education.  We are on the campus of Our Holy Redeemer Parish, in Freeport, N.Y.  Established in 2002, we are at capacity with 64 students, and have 104 graduates, who we continue to support through our Graduate Student Program.  

Our school depends entirely on the generosity of our benefactors.  We are enriched through the dedication of many caring volunteers and our staff.  To help in any way, please call the school at 516-379-8660, email us at DeLaSalleLI@hotmail.com, click on the "how to donate" link above, or to donate securely online, click the "donate" button, to the right.
