At Young Audiences Charter School, our arts-integration curriculum reflects recent research from the arts education field that provides significant evidence of the value of the arts in the learning process. In our school, teachers and administrators work to create and support a culture of high expectations that allows every student to reach their greatest potential, providing a creative, nurturing, and challenging academic environment to encourage students' individual learning and empower them to take their place in today's innovative and entrepreneurial economy.
As a Type 1 Charter authorized by the Jefferson Parish Public School System, YACS is open to any Jefferson Parish student entering kindergarten through 8th grade. Each following academic year, the school will add one grade so that ultimately it serves students in grades Pre-K through 12th. If there are more applicants than available spaces, the school will have a lottery as required by state charter school law.
