My daughter is in the upper school and is exceeding all expectations because the Academy has prepared her to do so and she demands it of herself. The Academy sustains a rigorous academic workload; the students are expected to be involved in many of the extracurricular clubs, organizations, and sports teams; spirituality, morals, and ethics are a part of the student's daily school life; and, community involvement is encouraged and service hours are required. Since the Academy's high school is small, an individualized education is received. Curriculums are tailored to meet the needs of the students. The elite universities and colleges that these young women receive acceptance to and the total amount of academic scholarships that they are awarded each year is a testament to the quality of the education provided by the Academy. When a Lacordaire Lady begins her university life, she most often finds that she is more than prepared, even finding some of the core college classes, remedial, in comparison to her Academy classes. My husband and I are very pleased with Lacordaire Academy and we are always happy to share our positive experiences with fellow parents and colleagues.

It beaks my heart to see my son receiving an education geared for the world as is existed 50 years ago, but he was enrolled by my ex and accepted by the school against my wishes. Do your own due diligence, but I've found it a colossal waste of money, especially since my son still needs tutoring to fill in the gaps.




- a
The staff is outstanding and the whole school atmosphere is very positive. Our daughter just graduated from 8th grade and we were very grateful to Laco for her great learning experience and personal happiness through it all.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Our daughter adjusted to the expected homework load. Of course they teachers expect much, but there was a fair 'give and take' attitude overall

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The Catholic Dominican spirit helps the students learn and appreciate the important moral values of our culture.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
The homework load is quite heavy, but students who leave for high school and college are more than prepared as a result of the work load.



- a
This school is academically rigorous. It is also inclusive,diverse in every way and a place that encourages giving back to the world in a positive way. This school empowers children to take ownership for their lives and communities. Lacordaire is an extraordinary place.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
This is a school that talks about ethics, being a good person,practicing academic integrity and above all kindness.




- a
I chose Lacordaire based on their sell of the school as a small, nurturing environment. That turned out being so far from the truth. They have the uncanny ability to harm a child's self-esteem



- a
Most elementary schools require their pupils to wear gym uniforms if they happen to have gym that day. I find it very practical and my daughter doesn't have problem with it. I think this school is set in a charming and nurturing environment where children achieve higher standards because of their small class sizes.
