High School LaCrosse

Great Hearts Academies continually evaluates the offerings available to our students, to provide the richest student experience for the soul, heart and mind.
One of the activities we are considering is the formation of lacrosse teams, for boys and girls, within the Great Hearts network. We are in the preliminary stages, but have had enlightening discussions among students, staff, faculty, administration and parents. Many of our students currently enjoy and excel in lacrosse at the recreational, club travel and interscholastic levels.

This team will be parent-led and not associated with the schools.  Please click HERE for more information.   If you have any questions or comments, please email GreatHeartsLacrosse@gmail.com.
