Who We Are

The mission of the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools is to advance equity and educational access through the advocacy, support, and promotion of excellent charter schools in Louisiana.

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.

What Students Say

"My name is Charles Walker. I am a senior at Frederick A Douglass High School, and I am also a Bard Early College New Orleans student. I am graduating in May and I currently have a 3.86 grade point average. I’ve been attending Douglass since 9th grade and I can wholeheartedly say that I have loved my time at this school. The community that I was introduced to coming into Douglass and Bard was nothing short of absolutely amazing and that has not changed in the slightest. At Douglass, students are given all the tools they need to succeed and they are surrounded by people that genuinely care about them and do everything in their power to help in anyway they can. I’ve truly enjoyed my experience at Douglass."
