New Orleans College Prep Charter School

Mission Statement

New Orleans College Prep will prepare each of its students to enter and excel in a rigorous 4-year college or university.

Our school is built upon the following principles and practices:
  • Expect all students to achieve at high levels
  • Recruit and empower outstanding teachers
  • Prepare every student for college success
  • Establish a structured school culture of excellence
  • Extend learning time to ensure student mastery
  • Teach with curricula and methods that have proven results
  • Use data to drive instruction
  • Engage families in the life of the school


New Orleans College Prep was founded in 2006 by a group of local residents committed to a new vision of public education in New Orleans. In contrast to low-performing public schools that fail to focus on results, New Orleans College Prep leverages demanding, standards-based, and performance-driven instruction to drive dramatic gains in student achievement.
New Orleans College Prep provides all our students with a sound college preparatory education that rivals the academic rigor of the best private and public schools in the city. As a public charter school, New Orleans College Prep is publicly funded, independently managed, non-selective, and available tuition-free on a lottery basis to any child in Orleans Parish.
