The De La Salle Chapter #918 of the California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is part of the statewide organization. The main objective of this organization is to recognize aspiring, young citizens of California who possess outstanding standards in academic scholarship, community service, and citizenship. Membership is on a semester basis based on grades earned from the previous semester. Eligible students must apply each semester. The application is made available through Schoology post from CSF Moderator, Mrs. Byrne, a few weeks into each new semester. Once the application is available, students have two weeks to submit.
Seniors can obtain CSF Life Membership, also known as CSF Sealbearer, and receive recognition at graduation. Special recognition includes a CSF Sealbearer pin to be worn at the ceremony, a special designation on their diploma and transcript. To achieve CSF Sealbearer status, a student must be an eligible member for at least 4 semesters (10-12th grade), including at least one (1) semester with grades earned in 12th grade. For more information, visit the California Scholarship Federation website.
Each year our students work on an annual fundraiser, as part of a state-wide CSF effort, and use the proceeds to support a local philanthropic organization. Last year, they worked with Panda Express to raise funds for the Bay Area Crisis Nursery's Adopt a Family for the Holidays program. Thanks to the generosity of our community, along with donations from CSF member families and the De La Salle faculty and staff, we were able to purchase everything on the family's holiday wish list.
