Welcome to the Upper School, future Lion! Our rigorous, self-directed curriculum will guide and challenge you as you discover your unique voice. You will explore classes across many academic and creative disciplines, dive into learning that is tailored to your specific areas of interest, and meet lifelong friends along the way. The benefits of a Lacordaire education are boundless. In fact, 100% of Upper School graduates are accepted into at least one of their top three college choices. 

In intimate, discussion-based classes, you will grow intellectually and creatively, learn from multiple perspectives, and expand your problem-solving abilities.

Your analytical and collaborative skills will be honed as you participate in hands-on experiments in our cutting edge science labs. 

Through project-based learning, you will experience new ways of understanding math, literature, history, and more.

You may find yourself firing ceramics in our kiln, running for a position in our active student government, editing Zephyr, our literary magazine, interning at a science lab, traveling with our religion department on various service trips, or celebrating as you win your first Lady Lions volleyball match.

A Lacordaire girl is someone who wants MORE out of her high school education.

On your graduation day, you will walk alongside your best friends, led across our lawn by a bagpiper in a beautiful century-old tradition, knowing that you are ready to take on whatever comes next.

You will leave Lacordaire empowered to use your voice and prepared to make a positive impact.
