Men of La Salle
Welcome to the Men of La Salle Webpage!
The Men of LaSalle - 70 plus years and still rolling!
The Men of La Salle are all fathers and guardians of La Salle students. For more than seventy years, the Men of La Salle have made the unbroken commitment that no student will ever have to leave La Salle due to the death of a primary wage-earning parent. Although it is difficult to believe, sadly we are called upon 6-8 times every year to serve this mission. Originally a “pass-the-hat” undertaking, those funds are now primarily generated from our joint efforts with the Mothers’ Club at the Auction which takes place each November.
The Men of La Salle also has a social mission, which is to strengthen school and family bonds through shared experiences that foster camaraderie, father/son fellowship and community service. We hope you share our belief that it is our duty to provide the guidance which will allow our boys to prevail as gentlemen.
During the school year, we meet in the library on the first Thursday of each month to socialize. We have a light meal, catch up with old friends and make new ones, stay informed about our sons’ school days through faculty speakers and plan our future activities. We also sponsor several social events, including a Golf Outing in the fall, and our most beloved Father-Son Banquet in the spring.
Additionally, we coordinate service events, such as Freshmen Branchout Day, where Freshman and their Fathers perform various service projects around Philadelphia. Other traditional service events have an undetermined status due to the pandemic.
It is most interesting to note that the majority of our Alumni contributions come from those who received some form of aid while they were attending La Salle College High School. We call this is the Beneficiary Effect – the long-term results of your good deeds.
There are many reasons to love La Salle. It is a special collection of people and traditions. We believe the Men of La Salle epitomizes this love of community and commitment.

Father/Son Golf Outing

$90 per person
A great way for you and your son to spend a fall day (off from school) with old and new friends. The four-person scramble (best ball) format keeps up the pace of play and enables all golfers - from beginner to scratch - to shine!

Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve - Our service mission is an integral part of our culture and the experience at La Salle College High School & only overshadowed by our focus on Faith and Family. Freshmen Branch Out Day is a meaningful way to tie Family and Service into your experience in the La Salian Community. On Branch Out Day, Father’s and Sons come together to share in a day of service, providing needed to local communities and instilling a commitment to lead and serve. This is an important day for La Salle, creating a memorable bond together as well as with other students and their fathers.
Fathers are encouraged to arrive early, where they will check in and receive their service assignments
Transportation: Each Father and Son will be provided bus transportation to their site of service.
Food: All participants will bring a packed lunch.

The pandemic has made it difficult for the current junior and sophomore classes to get the full LaSalle experience, including the participation of the Fathers in our meaningful activities. We encourage all Fathers to reach out to us, attend an event, or come to one of our monthly meetings to help us continue our tradition of LaSalle being a school for the whole family. You’ll be glad you did!
