Money magazine's ranking is also a good resource for evaluating academic quality balanced with cost and return (earnings) after college. Lots of good lacrosse options in the top 50 - many of the academically selective D1 schools you'd expect (ivies, Stanford, Duke) plus some good D3 options, as well as public universities like Michigan, UVA, UF, UNC, Va Tech, JMU and UConn that have good to excellent lacrosse programs. These lists can be a good starting point for comparing offers and opportunities, but every school is a good fit for someone and there are very happy and successful people who did not attend top ranked universities.
