DeLaSalle teachers and staff – called to follow in the Lasallian tradition – partner with each student in his or her individual learning. Academic support systems exist to provide students with the resources they need to be successful in their education at DeLaSalle and in their life journey after graduation.
Academic Support Systems
Guidance & Counseling
Staff in the Guidance office provide support for students dealing with personal situations or practical tips in areas such as setting goals, managing time, avoiding stress, staying healthy, taking tests, efficiently studying, and more.
Teachers and staff members, in addition to their work responsibilities, serve as an academic mentor to a group of 10-12 students. Mentors perform a valuable role for students over their four years at DeLaSalle, serving as an advocate and yet another resource that students can turn to in navigating their courses and experience at DeLaSalle. Mentors meet formally with their mentees about five or six times throughout the school year and are available anytime, by appointment.
Teachers are available to meet with students before and after school to review course material and work through subjects where students may need additional help.
Students who participate in National Honor Society are available to tutor students in a variety of subject areas, having already successfully completed the same classes in which their peers seek help. To discuss an individual tutor arrangement, please contact NHS moderators Brenda Wagner or Keely Wojda.
DeLaSalle employs a full-time learning specialist, who partners with those students who have presented unique learning needs, such as 504 plans, individual education plans (IEPs) or needs due to concussion, physical injury or other emergency situations.
