School/Life

school-pic-1-3

We are now in our sixth year as a school. We have gone from 10 students in 2011 to 86 students in grades Preschool – 6th grade. There are 10 qualified, full-time teachers on staff along with several part-time, subject-focused and ancillary teachers. Other key positions include a nutrition coordinator who also serves as our interpreter and liaison to Spanish speaking families and a full-time counselor to address the emotional and spiritual needs of our students and their families. Volunteers regularly help with academics and special activities.

We are especially grateful to have a beautiful, ten classroom building and an administration/multi-purpose building on a large 2 acre lot in the heart of the Gardere Community. Our administration building and land were graciously donated by New Life Church. God has used our partners in faith to further His kingdom to His glory!

We are excited about the progress the students are making, especially in the areas of reading, writing and math.  The weekly school schedule includes many enrichment activities such as Bible, art, music, physical education and health.   The students also experience several field trips each year.  Some of our field trips include the Baton Rouge Symphony, BREC Perkins Road Park, the USS Kidd, Louisiana Art and Science Museum, the Louisiana State Capitol, the Museum of Louisiana, CYT theatrical performances on LSU’s campus and visiting with and singing for residents at Catholic/Presbyterian Apartments. We offer our students as many hands-on experiences as possible. The academic progress and learning activities of the students are possible because of the generous and faithful support of others with their time, effort and financial resources.

Please contact us if you would like to visit, enroll your child, volunteer or give financially.
