Upper School

An Upper School college preparatory program with outstanding, experienced faculty is our cornerstone in grades 9 through 12.  LaGrange Academy provides every student with a strong background in math and science through our STEAM initiative and also offers each student the opportunity to experience the fine arts of music, drama, and visual arts. 

We offer AP courses in a breadth of disciplines for students, and classes are designed to emphasize analytical problem-solving skills and critical thinking in all areas of language arts and math.  Our English Department emphasizes the development of the necessary techniques for complex, coherent written expression, and our foreign language courses are designed to  develop the listening, speaking, reading, and writing of a second language.  History and social science offerings guide students to become knowledgeable, ethical, and responsible contributors to society.  LaGrange Academy is constantly enhancing its curricula to keep pace with the ever-evolving needs of our students who will be our future leaders in a fast paced global world.

College Counseling

Our College Counseling Office provides an informative and nurturing environment for the transition from high school to college. In addition to helping LaGrange Academy seniors identify and research potential colleges, our college counselor and the registrar will also direct academic advising and course selection beginning in the spring of each academic year.

In addition to attending the annual PROBE Fair at LaGrange College, each year LaGrange Academy Upper School students visit various colleges. By participating in this trip each year of high school, students will have the opportunity to visit approximately 20 colleges before beginning the college application process. While on the campuses, students will attend information sessions and walking tours. The students will also eat on campus as often as they can in order to observe college life in a more informal way. These schools will allow the students to view a variety of different college environments. Even if a student is not currently considering one of these schools, the trip is still beneficial. By visiting many different schools, our goal is that by the time students apply to college they will have a better sense of what type of college they would like to attend and a feeling of what college life may be like.
