  • Bring Your Own Device - Computer Needs

    La Salle Academy’s BYOD Program

    La Salle Academy has a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) program. Every student is required to have some form of mobile learning device.   The purpose is to enhance our curriculum by providing students with a form of direct classroom interaction through the use of technology. This allows teachers to continue to seamlessly integrate technology into the curriculum while allowing students the freedom to interact with content in a multitude of ways. 
    Technology Readiness for Students
    Digital Citizenship has been implemented into the curriculum to help students understand how to use technology appropriately.  Freshmen will receive a more in depth exploration in their course of studies.
    General Device Requirements
    • 7 inch display minimum
    • Battery life of 4-5 hours (minimum)
    • Must be able to connect to La Salle Academy’s wireless network
    • No phones

    La Salle cannot be a purchasing agent for any devices.

    Some Possible Devices
    • Apple Laptops
    • PC Laptops
    • Chromebooks
    • Surface tablets
    • iPads
    • Android tablets

    There are numerous other devices, too many to know or determine issues. 

    We do not provide more specific device recommendations to allow for flexibility for each student. The main goal of any device is that the student is comfortable with the device, and it allows the student to be productive.  The best recommendation is to choose a device with which your student is already familiar in order to minimize any learning curve.If you have any questions, please contact Amy Sanga at
  • Calculator Information

    All students are required to have a TI-Nspire graphing calculator for their math class next school year. The Nspire will be used in the core math courses, in science classes, and in many of the math electives offered at La Salle.

    The model of calculator that we recommend you purchase is the TI-Nspire CX II (the CAS model is not permitted on the ACT). Teachers will use this technology in the classroom with students each year. We also recommend the package that includes the handheld calculator and student software that can be used on a personal computer. Please save the student computer software information in the packaging.

    In order to assist you in determining the best place to purchase the calculator we have provided some online retailers below although you can purchase the calculator at other online and local stores as well.

    Amazon -

    Best Buy –

    Staples -

    Lastly, before you discard the packaging, please remove the entire back panel that includes the Technology Rewards Points and the UPC. The value of these points cannot be overstated as they can be redeemed for additional products to use with the Nspires in the classroom. Please have your son/daughter bring the back panel to their teacher on the first day of school or, if more convenient, you can send it to La Salle over the summer to the attention of the Math Department.

  • Meet the Dean of the Class of 2026

    We are excited to announce the Dean of the Class of 2026.  The following announcement was shared with the La Salle community. If you have any questions you can reach out to Dean Notargiacomo at

    "I am honored and privileged to appoint Mrs. Mandy Notargiacomo to the position of Dean and particularly to serve as the Dean of the Class of 2026.
    She is a woman imbued with the best practices of Lasallian education, an excellent teacher in the classroom and will be a Dean who is involved in the lives of the young men and women of her class.  She is thoroughly and devotedly engaged in the lives of the young people who are her responsibility and privilege to serve. While holding young people accountable and responsible for their decisions and direction, she will comfortably relate to them on levels beyond discipline to the level of touching lives in a significant way.
    I am sure that each of us in the next several days will offer her our best wishes and support as she begins her planning for our incoming freshman class.
