Founded in 1854 by the De La Salle Christian Brothers to serve abandoned and orphaned boys, LaSalle School is a multi-faceted human services agency.
A talented and dedicated staff of more than 200 work with a daily enrollment of 230 adolescent boys and their families in Residential Treatment, Day Education, the Specialized Treatment Program, the After School Center, and related programming. In addition, outpatient appointments are now being accepted at The Counseling Center at LaSalle.
Accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children (COA), LaSalle’s programs are licensed and monitored by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), the NYS Education Department (SED), and the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).
Located in the Pine Hill’s neighborhood of Albany, LaSalle’s main campus co-exists with residences, businesses, public schools, colleges and universities. Over the last decade, the agency’s facilities have benefited from an extensive program of renovation and new construction, providing an excellent environment for learning, living and working.
Today, the work of LaSalle extends well beyond the residential campus. Nearly two-thirds of the youth in care live in their own communities and homes. An emphasis on the development of enhanced education, aftercare and preventive services, has proven to be a natural compliment to the strong program of residential care LaSalle proudly traces to its origins, 160 years ago.
