IDEA Southern Louisiana Is Opening Schools In Your Neighborhood

In August of 2018, IDEA Public Schools will begin serving more than 1,000 K-2nd and 6th grade students in the Baton Rouge community.  Read on to learn more about us!

IDEA is a family of tuition-free public charter schools committed to seeing each child to and through college. We achieve our record of 100% college acceptance through a focus on core subjects, critical thinking and college preparedness. IDEA’s expert teachers partner with students and families every step of the way to ensure students are prepared for success in college and life. Our approach is different – and it works!

We ensure your child succeeds: IDEA takes careful steps to ensure that each child develops the skills and tools they need to succeed in school, college and beyond. Personalized learning at IDEA means every student learns at the level and speed just right for them.

Expert teachers: Our expert teachers are critical to IDEA’s success. Our teachers will invest as much time and effort into your child’s success as you have, working day in and day out to make sure that each child is set on the path to success.

We are a team: Your support as a parent plays an important role in your child’s learning and development. Through community events, parent-teacher conferences, and staying up to date on your child’s progress online, we partner with our parents to make sure that each child has the encouragement and tools they need.

“IDEA believes that there are no limitations on a child’s ability to succeed in college and life and we’re thrilled to open two schools this August,” said Kenneth Campbell, executive director of IDEA Southern Louisiana.  

We are a community of public schools committed to serving your neighborhood’s unique needs. IDEA graduates have become successful college students who give back to their communities and create the opportunities of tomorrow. IDEA’s expert teachers partner with students and families every step of the way to ensure students are prepared for success in college and life.  

IDEA Public Schools will open two schools in the Baton Rouge community- IDEA Bridge (near the cross streets of Tom Drive and Oak Villa Boulevard) and a second campus in South Baton Rouge.
