De La Salle High School and Bay Scholars: Partners in Mission, to Serve Students in Need
Incoming Freshman Application Deadline Monday, March 4th
De La Salle High School is proud to announce its new partnership in mission with Bay Scholars, to serve and embrace students with varied academic needs and diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds. Bay Scholars promotes a life-altering experience connecting promising youth with transformative educational opportunities at Bay Area Catholic college prep high schools.
Through financial and programmatic support, Bay Scholars makes it possible for promising low-income students across the Bay to have access to and flourish at successful college prep high schools. As the Western educational movement has recently focused on “cradle to career” development, high school can be viewed as the mid-point. Supporting students at this key time is crucial to their success in college and the workplace.
Beginning with the incoming class of 2023, each De La Salle, Bay Scholar recipient will receive a $14,000 scholarship paid over four years of high school ($3,500 per year). In addition to tuition assistance, the Bay Scholars team will work together with De La Salle faculty and staff to actively accompany its scholars from freshman through senior year, providing programming to make the ultimate goal of matriculating to a four-year university a reality. “We are hoping to serve an average of 10 Scholars per grade, per year at De La Salle,” says Mrs. Kavanagh. “By the 2022-2023 school year we hope to have about 40 or so Bay Scholars students at De La Salle.”
