I just graduated from this school and can say it was the worst deicision of my life. I cannot wait to attend college. It was a challenge going to school everyday, there was so much fighting between the girls when no one was around. I am totally surprised at my grades because I do not feel ready for college
... Read more at all. My friends that graduated from two years before had to come home or shift to community colleges for their second years due to poor grades in college. No One seems to succeed. I thought this might happen because there is so much of a grade curve in most classes and not much content to the courses. Their is a sense of entitlement from most of the girls here and very little bonding except for necessity so they get good letters of recommendation. recent middle states accreditation was bogus and rehearsed.

I have been lucky to find such a great school for my daughter. This is unique place where faculty challenge her and truly care for her well-being and academics. These components are hard to find for a student,anywhere. The manner in which she has been guided and mentored over the last 3 years has reflected

Do not listen to those picky and bitter parents/students because they do not get what they want. They do not realize that they pay for an education and more ( and not to get their way). I recommend Lacordaire for everybody! Great things happen at this school! Read less

Teachers go out of their way to make sure every student gets personal attention and they work very hard to make sure each girl is as successful as she can be. There are so many other places where kids can fall through the cracks - Lacordaire is definately NOT one of them. The most important thing my

Lacordaire is a great place that is safe and is truly a big family. The Academy offers a strong academic curriculim and a wide amount of activities in the arts and athletics. The Head of School/Principal is excellent and is always looking for new offerings and better ways to deliver the curriculum.

I went to this school from 05-09. I was present for the change in the principal. It was a terrible decision and he has ruined Lacordaire Academy. It used to be a safe haven for girls, but soon enough everyone began to dread it. He doesn't know how to react to female problems, or even relate to them.

This shcool was good for my daughter. No public scool would classify her. When we put here in Laco she got the special treatment she needed. Although they are not special ed trained they would do anything to help her succed, like more time on test and not having to do certain work and even a chance

I have been with the Lacordaire family for plenty of years and this school is fantastic. I cannot stress the appreciation and dedication each facultly and staff member plays at my child's second home.

Not much improvement since new principal came. He is from a military background and does not seem to understand the needs of an all female environment. Although regular meetings with parents group occur nothing ever really changes. Academics could be more challenging and many free's in schedule. Some
