Students honored during the ceremony included Distinguished Scholars, those who received academic and activity awards, and the DeLaSalle and Islander Awards. The class will graduate tonight at 6:45pm from the Basilica of Saint Mary. Congratulations, Class of 2018, on all you have accomplished and best wishes to you in your future success!

Spring Sports Playoffs Continue

Host an International Student in 2018-19

Islanders are known for their welcoming hospitality. DeLaSalle is looking for a family interested in hosting an international student in 2018-19. Yuan will be a sophomore this fall at DeLaSalle and enjoys science and math – and was part of a team this year that helped design an app. Hosting a student like Yuan offers a unique opportunity to build a special connection, explore new customs, and share American culture. Host families receive a housing stipend. Please contact the Office of Admission if you are interested.

Still Time to Register for DeLaSalle Summer Camps

Summer is just around the corner – and DeLaSalle is excited to host Camp Islander – a series of summer camps that help hundreds of local elementary, middle, and high school students build their skills and have fun learning new activities. Explore and register here for camps we offer in boys’ and girls’ basketball, cheer, football, boys’ and girls’ soccer, tennis, theatre, and volleyball.


Around DeLaSalle

DeLaSalle accepted a donation May 21 of 15 laptops from Outsell that will benefit students in two new Advanced Placement computer science courses and the redesigned Principles of Engineering course. Thanks to Mike Wethington, the CEO of Outsell and father of De alumni Mike Jr. ‘04 and Anna ‘07, for the generous contribution. Outsell staff explained their technology careers to students and answered questions about the ethics of gathering and protecting personal information online.
