Serving all of Louisiana


OneApp: how it works

Families must apply to Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans through OneApp.

  • Applications are accepted in “rounds,” meaning applications cannot be submitted before or after the start and end dates.
  • Applications are only valid for the following school year, meaning the child must be four years old of age by September 30th of the upcoming school year to be eligible to submit an application.
  • There are no waiting lists prior to entry to Pre-K4. Please pay close attention to deadlines.
  • 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 or watch the video on the right.

Tuition based vs Tuition free - moving on to Kindergarten

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.
