In the Dominican tradition, Lacordaire students learn to problem solve, to think critically and creatively and to communicate effectively  through  challenging academics. Small class sizes and a nurturing environment allow each child to reach his or her own potential.  A talented and dedicated faculty uses a combination of teaching strategies and the latest technology to engage students to be active learners and to make learning fun at every grade level.  Lacordaire Academy prepares students, not just for the next step in their education, but for life.  Global awareness, an appreciation for the arts, abilty to work collaboratively with a diverse group, character development and strong tecnological skills are all components of the curriculum from Pre K to grade 12.
