ATTENTION: As a result of the current COVID19 pandemic the Delta School District has made the difficult decision to put all academies on hold for the 2020/2021 school year. We thank you for your patience as we have turned our attention to essential education and the navigation of a potential second wave this fall. This decision has not been made lightly as we put our focus on the priorities put forward by the Ministry of Education and attend to required curriculum. We are incredibly proud of our Academy Programs. They are a testament to our commitment of engaging learners through stimulating, relevant and inspiring educational experiences and we look forward to reinstating them for the 2021/2022 school year.

Dear Delta Secondary Lacrosse Academy Parents and Students,
On behalf of the Delta School District, I would like to welcome you to the 2016 – 2017 school year.

I hope the summer provided time for fun and relaxation and students are now ready for a very successful academic and athletic year!
The first day of school this year is Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 with the first Lacrosse Academy class starting on Wednesday, September 7th. The Lacrosse Academy classes will once again be every other afternoon on Day 1 in Blocks C and D.
