  • Truth

    For over 170 years, through both challenges and triumphs, La Salle Institute has remained true to its tradition of academic excellence in an environment that respects and develops the dignity and well-being of each student. And now, with our Mission Expansion Initiative, we are poised to strengthen our legacy for decades to come.
  • Honor

    La Salle Institute is a leader in the Capital Region, providing an excellent and life-changing education to its young people, including an unmatched JROTC leadership program. At La Salle, Tradition Meets Tomorrow - we are proud of our rich history and we are honored to grow our Lasallian heritage as we prepare young men and women to become moral, responsible, and productive members of their communities.
  • Duty

    La Salle’s rich history gives us much to be proud of, however as the events of this past year have shown us, we must now look to the future from an even greater position of strength. It is time for our entire La Salle Institute community – alumni, parents, faculty, friends – to come together and assure a successful future for generations, while maintaining the finest standards and traditions of the Christian Brothers.

Campaign Priorities

List of 5 items.

  • Financial Aid

    The highest priority for this campaign is to make sure that a La Salle Institute education is affordable for every qualified young person who wishes to attend our school. After 171 years, we are still called by our Lasallian heritage to offer a life-changing education for children of families of every income level.
  • STEM and Technology

    To provide a 21st century STEM experience and education, we must update our science classrooms and grow our academic offerings in Robotics and Engineering. We will build on the technology momentum brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic to become even more efficient and effective, and ultimately better serve our students and their families. We want to have devices available for every student, have smart TVs in every classroom, offer a state-of-the-art technology lab, and buy more advanced equipment to support our STEM curriculum.
  • Building Revitalization, Security & Student Safety

    A building revitalization plan is underway to upgrade the school’s original 1965 construction. Plans include creating a more secure and welcoming entrance and installing energy-efficient windows, new roofing and classroom lighting, repairing and upgrading restrooms and athletic locker rooms, and installing security devices at all exterior entrances.
  • Athletics Programs

    It is critically important for La Salle to support all students and remain competitive in athletics. In 2018, we built a beautiful turf field and track complex and a new strength and conditioning center.
  • Musical Arts

    Music has been an important part of La Salle’s rich history for decades. With gift support, we will purchase new equipment and complete renovations to the band room to support our performance bands as well as our younger Cadet musicians.
