Learn more about what a charter school is and is not.

Let’s not just change history. Let’s make it!

All children learn differently. Parents need options as unique as their kids. Charter schools provide the personal attention, creativity, and passionate teaching students need to succeed.

In recent decades, historic natural disasters, a pandemic, and economic hardships have been constant barriers for our committees. Yet following each historic event that knocked down our city, New Orleans charter schools sprang up and made big swings to improve education.

Promoting Educational Excellence Throughout Louisiana’s Charter Schools

Charter schools are public schools that offer personal attention, creativity, and passionate teaching that kids need to learn. It’s simple, charter schools put students first. They give teachers the freedom to do what they do best, teach. Charters know that the one-size-fits-all education model does not work for families and students. Charters believe deeply that every student can access college and bright futures. Charter schools are free, public, and open to all.
