Mission Statement

Our mission is to prepare every school and every teacher to teach every child, so that all will learn.

Description

In conjunction with the Orleans Parish School Board, the Algiers Charter Schools Association (ACSA) has elected to establish charter schools to address the needs of families living on the West Bank of New Orleans and, to the best of our abilities, those families throughout the East Bank as well who are looking for educational alternatives. As part of its charter, the Algiers Charter Schools Association incorporated TAP, a system for teacher and student advancement, ensuring that the comprehensive system would serve as the backbone for improving teacher quality and growth in student achievement.

The Algiers Charter Schools Association is led by a seven member Board of Trustees. Each board member must have resided or have been employed in Algiers for no less than three years prior to his/her application for service on the board.

The Algiers Charter School Association is part of a growing national movement that has seen the introduction of over 3,600 charter schools in the last thirteen years. The ACSA is working to make the schools within the association free from the burdens of conventional education structures, and to ensure that each school is open by choice to all students without admissions tests, is not religiously affiliated, and has high accountability standards.

The Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum serves as the basis of our instructional program, but the principals of our schools are able to develop a course of study for their schools that best suits the needs of their students. Each school has developed a personality of its own and a specialty area of instruction.
