    For close to 20 years, The De La Salle School has provided economically disadvantaged young men with a Christian and human education in the Lasallian tradition.  We are a Catholic middle school, grades 5 through 8, and we are part of the San Miguel/Nativity Coalition of schools, a nationwide model.

    Your support helps our faculty and administration provide a truly transformative experience to our students, all of whom come from economically disadvantaged circumstances with many living in failing school districts.  Your support helps our students get accepted into and attend Catholic high schools, many the first in their families to graduate from high school, and go on to achieve a college education.  We cannot do this without your help.

    We are non-tuition drive, and more than 90% of our budget is from individual, corporate and foundation donations. 

    We are a IRS recognized 501c3 tax exempt charity, and your donation is fully tax deductible.  Please join with us in our mission: please make a donation to  support our scholarship fund. 

    To make a donation by check, please write the check out to The De La Salle School, and send it to the attention of William Gault, Executive Director, The De La Salle School, 87 Pine Street, Freeport, NY 11520.    

    If you would like to join hundreds of others honoring our Founding Executive Director, Brother Thomas P. Casey, FSC, and make a one-time or recurring gift sponsoring the education of a student for a week, month, or day,  in his name, please click here.

    Congratulations to our Artist of the Week - Karim Florentino, 8th Grade

    For this project, students created an art portfolio. Students learned that artist portfolios are an integral method of displaying an artist’s visual work. Portfolios also contain important information that is vital in project evaluations. Not only do they serve as a vessel to showcase artist work, they are also used to keep an account on all work and evaluations. 

    For this year, it is through these portfolios that projects will be kept in and graded. Students had to follow specific guidelines in order to create their portfolios.
