Extended Day Extended Year Program

 

La Salle Academy believes in educating the whole child.  Our extended day and extended year program enables our students, thanks to Board Members, benefactors and teachers, to experience activities not usually associated with traditional school curriculums.  These programs encourage our students to explore experiences that stretch their imaginations, uncover unknown talents and improve existing skills. 

Students have benefitted through their participation in Enrichment Clubs such as:

  • Dancing with the Students
  • Drama
  • Debate
  • Learning to speak German and French
  • Healthy Eating
  • Art Enrichment
  • Tennis, Soccer, Basketball, Softball
  • Newspaper
  • Trivia
  • International Affairs
  • Poetry

New additions to this year’s enrichment clubs are Junior Achievement, Urban Blazers, Shalom, and Healthy Newspaper. 

In addition to exposing our students to various Enrichment Clubs, the La Salle Academy Community expands Monday through Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 to welcome the many volunteers (high school, college, and retired) who tutor our students during Homework Club.  These volunteers in addition to helping our students complete their homework serve as role models by being real life examples of people who believe and value education and service.

We are grateful to all of our volunteers for enriching all of our lives through their service.
