Upper School 

Senior Parent:
"  The value that Lacordaire has provided for my duaghter has been immeasurable. The opportunities abound in academics, activities, sports, social events, personal growth and leadership. The school fosters a great sense of responsibility to community while developing the individuality of the young woman. The real prize is the personalized attention from the first day of freshman year that continues long after graduation. "

Freshman Parent:
"My daughter has received an incredible gift by coming to Lacordaire Academy. She is surronded by a very diverse group of young women, all of whom are bright, caring and curious about life. She is being educated and nurtured in a way I could not have imagined before now. Her classes are small in size, ensuring that she will get the attention she needs. The classes in theatre, art and design are a bonus for her as well as joining the tennis team and receiving great coaching. You do not get lost at Lacordaire."
