Admissions

WELCOME TO LACORDAIRE ACADEMY ADMISSIONS!

We offer an independent, Catholic school education for boys and girls in Pre-K through eighth grades, and an all-women’s college preparatory education in grades nine through twelve.  Lacordaire students represent diverse ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds. They grow and learn in a school setting that nurtures excellence, respect, appreciation, and integrity. An education at Lacordaire Academy reflects the Four Pillars of Dominican life—study, prayer, mission, and community—as the foundation for a successful and meaningful future. Prepared with this foundation, our students go on to make a lasting impact on the world.

We are living in unprecedented times of the pandemic, but at Lacordaire the learning continues and the mission continues. This academic year we are offering both virtual and in person learning (5 full days a week as of October 19th).

Thank you for your interest in Lacordaire Academy. We invite you to experience Lacordaire for yourselves. Consider attending our virtual Fall Open House or Information Sessions, make an appointment for a private Zoom meeting, or simply call the Admissions Office. Please contact us today to further discuss Lacordaire’s legacy of excellence in providing a superior education for tomorrow’s leaders. We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
