La Salle Academy honors 150-year history by investing in an inclusive future


PROVIDENCE — La Salle Academy has announced the launch of Generations: The Campaign for La Salle Students. This campaign, which has a $14 million goal, invites donors to celebrate the Academy’s 150th anniversary by supporting three key areas: endowments, athletics, and the La Salle Fund. Thanks to the generosity of La Salle’s leadership donors, the school has already raised $10 million. 

“The campaign’s most significant priority is keeping La Salle accessible and affordable for all families; it ensures that deserving students, especially those from working class and underserved communities, have access to a rigorous, faith-based education,” explained Brother Dennis Malloy, president of La Salle Academy.

For this reason, endowments are the cornerstone of Generations. Second is the athletics program – with a focus on building a field sports center. This facility, in addition to benefiting La Salle’s student-athletes, will be used by De La Salle Middle School. The La Salle Fund, which rounds off the campaign’s three key areas, keeps the school’s technology current, tuition stable, and helps with unexpected expenses, such as the recent investment to protect students and teachers during COVID-19.

Since La Salle Academy’s founding in 1871, the Catholic high school has provided students with a quality education, regardless of socioeconomic status. This long, proud history has been a solid foundation for many young people; one that’s helped them become leaders in their professions and communities. Generations: The Campaign for La Salle Students supports the Academy’s mission of creating opportunities for future generations – just as they’ve done for 150 years.
