At La Salle, our partners enhance the academic experience inside and outside the classroom. La Salle is connected to several top colleges and universities, including engineering powerhouse The Cooper Union, our Lasallian affiliates, Manhattan College and La Salle University, as well as St. John’s University. We also have unique relationships with two New York City high schools, including St. Joseph High School, one of the finest all-girls Catholic college preparatory institutions in downtown Brooklyn, and The Abraham Joshua Heschel School, a Jewish Day school on the Upper West Side. And we are proud to call Microsoft our technology partner, who provides us with a sophisticated framework for our tablet program.

This top Lasallian liberal arts institution is developing a dual-credit program that will allow La Salle’s students to earn college credit while attending high school, beginning as early as junior year. Dual credit students will have the opportunity to take college-level courses taught by fully credentialed adjunct and full-time LSU faculty during the summer and/or online.
LSU hosts La Salle each year when our students travel to Philadelphia. Through our La Salle in the City program, students explore “The City of Brotherly Love” to learn our nation’s history.
Manhattan College has developed a dual-credit program that will launch in the fall of 2016 with a course in American Politics. La Salle's senior honors track students enrolled in this course are afforded three college credits through Manhattan College. The course is taught by La Salle Academy President, Dr. Catherine Guerriero, who is also a ranked adjunct faculty member at Manhattan College. More dual-credit course offerings will be added to our curriculum in fall 2018.
In addition to this academic collaboration with our "uptown" Lasallian partner, Manhattan College's Office of Campus Ministry coordinates annual retreats on campus for La Salle's students and faculty and the college consistently hosts our championship-winning Cardinals at their Division-I level athletic facilities.
