LAX Header 7Academy overview #1   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. Our passionate teachers and outstanding professional coaches work hard at building positive, trusting, and encouraging relationships with our learners.
