Who we are
Collegiate Academies is the first charter management organization in New Orleans to focus solely on high schools. Collegiate Academies believes that, even as late as high school, traditionally underserved students can achieve college success and pursue the lives and dreams of their choosing.

Sci Academy, our founding high school, opened its doors in 2008 with just a 9th grade. This past year, that founding class graduated from Sci. When they entered, they performed on average at a 4.5 grade level in both reading and math. Upon graduation, 94% of them were accepted into a 4-year college or university.
That is our goal: to make college success a reality for scholars, no matter how old they are or what their levels are. There are many high school programs around the country working to close the gap that have feeder middle schools. But there are virtually no examples of schools that are closing the gap starting in the 9th grade.
We believe in a growth mindset - that it is never too late to start the path to college success. This year, we opened two new schools, Carver Prep and Carver Collegiate, each with a 9th grade, with the same goal in mind for all scholars: college success.
For this coming school year, positions are available in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Language, and Special Education / Intervention, across grades nine through 12. We will be hiring for Sci Academy as well as for the 10th grades we will add at our two new schools, Carver Collegiate Academy and Carver Preparatory Academy.

The biggest reward we could ask for is our scholars being successful in college. Our first graduating class is attending college all over the state of Louisiana and the country. Examples include Grambling State University, University of New Orleans, Louisiana State University, Tulane University, Amherst College, Wesleyan University, Smith College, and Middlebury College. In addition, we have been named one of six groundbreaking American schools by the Oprah Winfrey Show and have been featured in The Times-Picayune, Dallas Morning News, Good Morning America, GOOD Magazine, and Teach Like A Champion, by Doug Lemov.
