New Louisiana A+ Schools Added and Now Hiring

Two New Louisiana A+ Schools

Last week in Lake Charles, Louisiana A+ Schools announced the addition of two new schools for the 2016/2017 academic year. With the addition of Lake Charles Charter Academy and Bains Lower Elementary School (in St. Francisville, LA), our statewide network of arts-integrated schools is now up to 18!

The students at Lake Charles Charter Academy welcomed the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts into their classrooms to see the Rodrigue-inspired artwork already adorning the halls. As a Louisiana A+ School, their entire faculty will receive intensive professional development in arts integration, and all subjects will be infused with the arts. We are thrilled to expand our network into the Lake Charles and St. Francisville communities!
