The Culver Academies, founded in 1894 in Culver, Indiana, offers high school students an unrivalled combination of academic, athletic, and leadership development programs. Established in 1982, Culver’s boys lacrosse program has set a standard for excellence that few high school lacrosse programs can match.
Culver has won seven Indiana state championships, and in 2012, Culver’s prep lacrosse program won the second annual North American Elite Tournament. Under head lacrosse coach Jon Posner (8 seasons, 129-45), Culver has established a reputation as a nationally competitive lacrosse program. From 2009-2012, the Culver prep lacrosse program recorded a record of 73-15 against the most highly regarded lacrosse programs in the United States. Both the 2011 and 2012 Culver prep teams finished the season ranked in the top 25 among all high school lacrosse programs in the United States.

The prep team also participates each year in the North American Elite Tournament, which includes many of the finest lacrosse programs in the Midwest and Canada. The Culver Varsity high school team competes against other Midwestern high school programs, and also competes annually for the Indiana high school state championship.
