HOW TO APPLY

Families must apply to Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans through OneApp. Applications are accepted in “rounds,” the dates for which are listed towards the bottom of this page. Please pay close attention to deadlines.

Important Notes:

  • Current Tuition Pre-K4 families at Lycée must apply to Kindergarten. Tuition Pre-K4 students are not automatically promoted to Kindergarten.
  • Students already enrolled at Lycée in Kindergarten and beyond do not need to apply to their next grade level. Current students are automatically promoted to the next grade level except in cases of retention.

Families are asked to list their school choices by rank on their applications, with the #1 choice listed first. Each participating school has a code that is normally composed of three digits, which families may use to apply. Lycée’s code is 711 for all grades except tuition-based Pre-K4. The tuition-based Pre-K4 code is 722.

Please note: Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans serves all of Louisiana. Families living outside of Orleans Parish are welcome to apply.

OneApp is the citywide lottery for the majority of charter schools in New Orleans. To learn more about OneApp, visit www.enrollnola.org or watch the video on the right.

What is Late Enrollment?

With the close of the OneApp application cycles, families who still need to enroll in school for K-12 for the upcoming year may do so during Late Enrollment. Late Enrollment is a first-come, first-served enrollment process based on remaining seat availability. Open Enrollment continues for Early Childhood until June 28th. Families needing an early childhood seat for next school year should bring their eligibility documents to a Family Resource Center to claim a seat.

Late Enrollment will begin July 10 and will last through October 1. As in years past:

–          The first week of Late Enrollment will take place at Dillard University, and enrollment starts will be staggered by student grade:

o    July 10: Grades 9-12

o    July 11: Grades K-12

o    July 12-14: Grades PK3-12

o    This is to help break up parent traffic, and to keep wait times to a minimum for our families.

Where is Late Enrollment?

From July 10 – July 14, EnrollNOLA be partnering with Dillard University to provide a comfortable start for the busy Late Enrollment season. They will be serving families from the University’s Professional Schools and Sciences Building:

Dillard University: Professional Schools and Sciences Building

July 10 – July 148 AM – 4 PM

  • Free parking will be available, and the campus is easily accessible by bus. After July 14, EnrollNOLA will return to standard FRC locations and operating hours.
  • Schools may not recruit on campus.
  • A daily Seat Availability Report will be posted on EnrollNOLA.org at the beginning of July for K-12 availability, so families may see which schools have open seats in their child’s grade. Early Childhood availability is posted now and updated on Mondays and Thursdays and can be found here: How to Enroll and Submit an Application for Next Year.
