What is Lafayette Online Academy?
Established in 2017, Lafayette Online Academy (LOA) is part of the Lafayette Parish Public School System, offering the only free, local, online educational experience to K-12 students in Lafayette Parish.
Powered by courseware industry leader Edgenuity, LOA’s award-winning curriculum is designed to engage, challenge and inspire student learning. This high quality online education is supplemented by individual tutoring and assistance provided by LPSS teachers at the student’s base school. While enrolled with LOA, LPSS students remain closely connected to their base school for counseling and other services, and students can participate in extracurricular activities like athletics, prom and graduation ceremonies.
Is Lafayette Online Academy a good fit for my student?
LOA recommends that parents/guardians consider each student’s specific needs, challenges and goals before enrolling in the Academy. While LOA is open to students of all ages K-12, younger children (K-5) tend to require strong and consistent adult involvement in their home learning. For older students (6-12), the ability to be self-motivated and manage time and schoolwork is very important.
