Lafayette Charter School Session Set Tuesday
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — An informational session about Lafayette Renaissance Charter Academy will be held Tuesday.
The session is the first of several planned for people to learn more about the school and the Acadiana Renaissance Charter Academy, which will open in Youngsville.
The Advocate reports both schools are overseen by the Lafayette Charter Foundation and will open to students in grades K-6 in August. Both schools will add seventh and eighth grades in subsequent years. The foundation has joined with Florida charter management company Charter Schools USA to manage the schools.
Each school is under construction and will measure nearly 58,000 square feet to accommodate 591 students in the first year of operation.
Online enrollment for both schools is now open.
