Applicants should first call the Admissions Department at (504) 620-5500 ext 1757 to discuss options. Short appointments either via phone or on campus may be scheduled with a member of the Academic team following this initial conversation.

School Leadership has voted to discontinue small group tours due to teacher feedback that it is very disruptive for the students. Individual tours cannot be accommodated. We have added more open house dates and more offsite visits, as well as creating our brand new promotional video.
