Welcome to the La Salle Alumni Community!
The Alumni Community Web pages offer the simplest and most efficient outlets for you to keep up-to-date on La Salle’s alumni events throughout the year. You will find event information and calendars listing all upcoming alumni functions, including reunions, nationwide regional alumni receptions, alumni visiting days, and more. Everything you need to stay informed about what La Salle has planned for you is here.
The Alumni Community makes it easier than ever to keep in touch not only with your own classmates, but with La Salle alums from other graduating classes too. Here you can maintain open lines of communication by posting and updating your contact information; you can use your contacts to help your classmates and the school find “missing” alums; you can publish news of your latest accomplishments in the online version of “Class Notes” (one of the most popular features in our Alumni Magazine and Alumni News). You can even use this space to e-mail messages to your classmates. In short, the online Alumni Community will be the ultimate hub of information and interaction for La Salle alums.
Requests for transcripts must be addressed to the Guidance Office.

|Dan Rinaldi '51 Remembers Being With "A Great Group Of Guys"|
In describing his fondest memories of La Salle Academy while on a visit to the campus, Dan Rinaldi ’51 said, “Being with the great group of guys I was with — particularly my closest friends Richie Ryder and Bob DiIorio with whom I have lunch every month at Richards Pub or Mike’s Kitchen — that is what I remember and cherish the most.”
“In academics, I truly enjoyed reading American History,”said Dan who was drafted and served in the Korean War. “I also was fond of French as taught by Brother Thomas and Mr. Reilly whose Brother Joe was in my French class. I learned to speak French and it came in handy when I was
“My favorite teachers were Brother Thomas, Lou Cimini — a peach of a guy, Ed Roth, Brother Adrian and Bill (Zip) McKenna who would say to us, ‘take a zip for the day,’ meaning we got a zero,” said Dan who later graduated from Providence College with a degree in Economics. “I did well at PC — particularly my last two years when I got straight A’s. I graduated and went to work at Rhode Island Hospital Trust as a trainee to the head of the Rhode Island Division lending officer.”
|Mike Tripp Reflects On His La Salle Years|
When asked about his fondest memories of La Salle Academy, Mike Tripp ’64 says that there were two — “our team winning the state wrestling championship and being the overall season highest scorer in the state with an undefeated high school career — and, more importantly having the ‘much needed’ support of all the Brothers to maintain a B average in order to play sports!”
“I was a pretty good student in some subjects such as plain geometry where I had a 96 average thanks to the fact that the subject was really based on logic,” said the former U.S. Marine who served in Vietnam (more on that later). “On the other hand, I had to sit out the Thanksgiving football game because I didn’t read Beowolf in Mr. Paolino’s class but I worked hard and earned a 96 average the second quarter.”
“My favorite teachers were Brother William who taught religion and Brother Anthony Hart who taught economic history and who was way ahead of the curve in the way he taught,” continued Mike, a member of the La Salle AcademyHall of Fame and the owner of a thriving accounting firm. “I fondly remember Brother Michael who is now in Long Island and I correspond with Brother Tim Rapa.”
It is with sadness that La Salle notes the loss of these alumni and friends. Our thoughts and prayers go to their families and loved ones.
