What Alumni are Saying...
"French Immersion is a program that shaped my life. I was enrolled the year it began and my classmates and I quickly became family. Not only were we taught in a wonderful new language, but we learned about our French heritage and connected organically with our culture. I always knew there was something special about us and the way that we were educated. We had an advantage, given our young age, to absorb as much of the language as possible. Due to this advanced learning program, our scholastic achievements often surpassed those of our non-Immersion classmates throughout our academic careers. We were also able to forge a bond of lifetime friendship with those whom we shared this unique experience."

In an attempt to give students a more exciting and fulfilling educational experience and improve the ethnic diversity of its schools, the Lafayette Parish School System offers Schools of Choice at the Elementary, Middle and High School levels.
These schools offer specialized programs or themes that give students the core curriculum required by state guidelines in the context of a subject in which the student has an interest. All students in the parish are eligible to apply for admission to any School of Choice, although they must complete the application process.
