Lacrosse Academy Mandate
As stated in our Bold Vision, Delta School District strives “to be a leading district in innovative teaching and learner success.”
We believe our Academy Programs are testament to our goal of engaging learners through stimulating, relevant and inspiring educational experiences. Each of our unique academies creates an environment where our students feel great pride and, in turn, great success.
