Good Morning

A proposed conversion of the remaining Orleans Parish School Board controlled schools is setting the stage for the nation’s first all-charter school system.

We are looking forward to having WNBA legend Lisa Leslie join us and many of our Scholarship Program families tonight in Baton Rouge during the LFC Christmas Celebration.

Have a great day! – Paul
