It takes talent and heart to be a teacher, maybe even more so for instructors at DeLaSalle.  Your gift “Helps a Teacher to Help a Student” and every donation makes a difference! Examples* of the impact your gift can have at DeLaSalle are outlined below.

Help a Teacher, Help a Student

Help our students get the education they deserve. Help a teacher, help a student.




Some students at DeLaSalle understand core academic subject matter but have not regularly attended school in the past so they never earned credit for a given class.  That is where DeLaSalle associate director of data & assessment Kelly Lightcap steps in.

I really like helping the kids learn on their own.  It is important to teach skills like note taking, test taking, planning and keeping track of assignments while they catch up on missed credits.”

Ms. Lightcap  knows that in addition to rigorous academics, DeLaSalle’s wraparound support services like the on-site child development center and our Team of Care mental health services help students address their academic and social challenges. Will you help Ms. Lightcap help our students towards a successful future? 






Mr. Wright sees a little of himself in the students he teaches at DeLaSalle. He grew up in the urban core and credits his success to the teachers and coaches he had in school.

“Kids see their teachers more than their parents. It takes daily positive interactions to make a difference.”

Can you help Mr. Wright help his students?
