Cardinal Lacroix Academy is committed to academic excellence; which we believe is possible through proper instruction, curriculum, individualized attention, and student achievement. The school utilizes these best practices to offer a rigorous academic program.
Pre-K & Kindergarten Curriculum
Fostering Joyful Early Education
The developmentally appropriate and academically based learning curriculum focuses on a joyful educational experience for all students. Through imaginative blocks of free-play and structured opportunities for social engagement, we actively promote making positive choices, and help each student to build their self-confidence.
Prayer, nature, science, sights and sounds of the alphabet, community helpers, good nutrition, rhyming, mathematics, Spanish language, technology and creativity are incorporated throughout the Pre-K year so as to build a solid foundation in academic preparedness necessarily for continued success.
Promoting Academic Excellence
We offer a robust academic program focused on differentiated instruction and presented using research-based teaching methods that actively engage students in the learning process to foster enduring understandings. In addition to a comprehensive language arts, math, science and social studies there is daily prayer and religion class.
Students attend classes in French or Spanish, Art, Music, and Computer Technology. The school also provides a complete Physical Education program in our own gymnasium. To stimulate social interaction, school spirit and fun we offer several after school enrichment programs such as basketball, robotics, math club, band, running club and drama club.
