The Board of Directors (Board) of Louisiana Connections Academy (LACA) will be applying to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) to start a public virtual charter school for the 2024-25 school year. LACA will begin by serving students in grades 6-8 statewide and expand to grades K-12 by year five. LACA will implement an award-winning, standards-aligned curriculum focusing on and supporting academic achievement for all students. Our mission is to empower students to meet their unique educational and life goals through flexible pacing, college preparatory programming, and career readiness development.
Students and families will benefit from the best practices developed from this proven core model of virtual learning over the past 20 years. Louisiana Connections Academy will also provide students with a unique badging and credentialing experience where students can learn a new skill and work on career readiness.
