    Arts Integration Program
    The comprehensive arts integration program is designed for students who have a strong interest in dance, drama, music, and art as well as for students who want a challenging academic experience. The curriculum is designed to incorporate the arts into the core classes to help deepen and broaden student understanding while adhering to the state mandated learning objectives and parish policies.

    International Baccalaureate Program
    IB programs develop the whole student, helping students to grow intellectually, socially, aesthetically, and culturally. They provide a broad and balanced education that includes science and the humanities, languages and mathematics, technology, and the arts. They instill a sense of responsibility towards others and towards the environment. IB programs also give students an awareness and understanding of their own culture and of other cultures, values, and ways of life.

    Language Immersion Program
    The dual language immersion program develops student proficiency in a second language while providing a foundation in fundamentals of language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. The program fosters an understanding of and an appreciation for Louisiana’s cultures and those of other areas and countries.
