Welcome to Academic Support
De La Salle is a professional learning community, and as such, we are committed to ensuring high levels of learning for all students.
The role of the Academic Support team is to provide the extra time and support that some students may need to master the essentials. The team has four members, all full-time faculty members. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
The team provides support through several programs.
Programs which mainly target freshmen
The FAST program (Future Achievement Starts Today) targets incoming freshmen we believe will benefit from extra support to enable them to soar academically.
The Principles of Literacy class helps students read with greater comprehension. Many FAST students are required to take this class.
FAST and the Literacy Summer Workshop are required of students in the FAST program or the Principles of Literacy class.
Intensive Math targets select freshmen and meets every other day. Intensive Math is designed to boost basic math skills and meets in addition to the College Prep Algebra course required of every freshman.
Programs which support students in all gradesThe SAIL program (Student Academic Intervention for Learning) provides support to all students who need extra help or extra time to master the essentials. Student who are on academic probation are automatically assigned to SAIL.
Power Hour (In-School Support Program) is a daily tutoring program that is available for all students.
International students from non-English speaking countries will be enrolled in English as a Second Language (ESL).
