Athletics and Extracurriculars


In keeping with our mission to develop students’ gifts and talents, Lacordaire is proud to offer a wide variety of after school offerings to help enrich student life at the Academy. These enrichment opportunities vary throughout the academic year, and include options such as dance, art, instrumental lessons, reading clubs, STEAM workshops, coding classes, yoga, soccer, basketball, running club, and more!


Clubs and activities are at the heart of Lacordaire and truly elevate our curriculum. Students can advance their knowledge of math and science in Robotics, enhance global connections in One World Club or hone their performance skills with Forensics or participating in one of our many productions.


Extracurricular options and athletic programs are abundant in the Upper School. The Academy offers four competitive sports teams: Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis, Running Club, and Softball. In addition, the Upper School has a multitude of clubs and extracurricular options. For the aspiring journalist, we have the newspaper and our literary magazine, Zephyr. For the environmentalist and engineer, we have our Environmental Club and our Science Mentor Club. To honor our many cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds represented at the Academy, we have our Hispanic Club, our Black History Club, and our Feminist Club. We have our Mission Club for our volunteers and also our Academic Honors Organizations, such as National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta, the Math Honors Society; this is just to name a few of our organizations. Extracurricular activities play a crucial role in enhancing what the students have learned in the classroom while also allowing themselves to express their points of view.
