Lycée’s Future Home

In 2015, Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans purchased the historic Alfred C. Priestley Junior High School building at 1619 Leonidas Street. Lycée envisions this building as a permanent home that the students deserve, by providing a state-of-the-art high school that will bear witness to their accomplishments for years to come.

Lycée’s supporting foundation, Amis du Lycée Français, officially launched the Room to Grow capital campaign in the spring of 2019. The Room to Grow Campaign will help renovate and restore the Alfred C. Priestley Junior high school building, the gymnasium and add a digital media center. The total cost of the project is $14 million, which will be broken down the following way: $2 million anticipated in philanthropic support, $3 million anticipated in tax credits, and the remainder of the funds will be financed.

Donations can be made online here. Checks may also be sent by mail to:
Amis du Lycée Français
Attn: Office of Development
5951 Patton Street
New Orleans, LA 70115
