Lacordaire offers a well-balanced curriculum that both engages and challenges its students through inquiry and project-based learning. The Academy is committed to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) as well as Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) initiatives, and integrates technology across the curriculum at every grade level. Our youngest students learn through play and exploration of their world with hands-on and interactive activities. Lacordaire’s curriculum seeks to develop good citizenship, global awareness, and faith, as well as a love of learning. The basic subjects of reading, language arts, social studies, math, science and religion provide the foundation for the curriculum. Reading and math programs are developmentally structured programs that consider the needs of students of all abilities. The course of study is further enriched by the addition of art instruction, French language classes, music, physical education, computer science and field trips.
All instruction is designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of learning styles. Student progress is evaluated through a variety of methods including parent teacher conferences, portfolios, class and group work, teacher observation, progress reports, report cards and standardized tests.
