"To be entrusted with the teaching of the young is a great gift and grace of God."
-Saint John Baptist de La Salle

Generations of Excellence

Imagine that it’s 150 years ago: La Salle Academy is celebrating its founding, the nation is recovering from the Civil War, and the lightbulb won't be invented for another eight years. While the world has been through a lot since 1871, including two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the dawning of a new millennium, one thing remains the same: La Salle Academy’s commitment to providing young people with an education built upon faith, service, and excellence.

Over the last century and a half, La Salle has become a tradition for many – passed down from father to son, mother to daughter, and grandparent to grandchild. It's these enduring connections that bridge generations and reinforce the school's legacy; it's also why we're proud to bring you Generations: The Campaign for La Salle Students.

Along with investing in the school's continued growth, your generosity will help deserving students, especially those from working-class families, access a Lasallian education. Together, we will ensure that each generation of students who pass through La Salle's historic halls understand what it means to learn, serve, lead, and succeed. To accomplish this, Generations will focus on three key areas: endowments, athletics, and the La Salle Fund.
Young people deserve a great education, regardless of their family's financial situation. You can help give them one by making a gift to La Salle Academy's endowed scholarship program. Your generosity will help children receive a high quality, faith-based education – one that sets them up for success. For your convenience, we offer a multi-year giving option. Donate now.
La Salle student-athletes have proven competitive in the Rhode Island Interscholastic League since it was established in 1932. Since then, our athletic programs have grown – which is why it's critical that we invest in updated facilities. Whether you played for La Salle, or simply bleed maroon and white, you can help students realize their full potential by donating today.
The La Salle Fund allows us to offer stable tuition rates while maintaining a strong budget. It also helps keep our technologies current, extracurricular activities vibrant, and resources up-to-date. In addition, it covers unexpected expenses, such as the recent safety measures we implemented to protect our students and teachers during COVID-19. Donate today to invest in the future.

Invest in the future. Honor the past.

It's true, giving to the Generations Campaign is making an investment in the future, but it's also honoring the Lasallians of the past. We set a goal of $14 million; thanks to the generosity of our leadership donors, we've already raised $10 million... but we need you to reach our goal.

Whether it's helping our student-athletes, supporting the La Salle Fund, or changing a child's life through education... we can't do it without you. 

Make a gift today to ensure that future generations understand the importance of starting each day by praying: Live, Jesus, in our hearts.
Dear Friends,

As students, few of us could have imag
ined the impact La Salle Academy would have on our lives. As the oldest of seven kids, with a father who was a teamster working three jobs to fund our education, it was a big deal for me to attend La Salle. Although I did not realize it at the time, it would change the trajectory of my life.

My parents’ hard work, investment, and commitment has had an impact on generations of our family. I, in turn, hope to honor them with my own support to the Generations campaign. In this historic season, on the eve of our 150th Anniversary, our families, our state, our country, and even our world needs La Salle more than ever. So too, La Salle needs us now more than ever if we are to sustain its mission.

Let us aspire to the ideals we learned in the classrooms of La Salle Academy and fulfill our role as generational heirs to St. Jean Baptist de La Salle. Join me with your own gift in support of our Generations campaign. In turn, future generations will set their own course to be leaders and honorable, productive members of society.
