Project Milestones

ACSW Architects, Pfluger, and Lemoine Company are leading the $100-million project to build the new facility to replace the aged school that currently exists. Renderings indicate it will be a three-story school building with an outdoor courtyard dining area, media center, and a new auditorium/concert hall.

My nieces and nephew all graduated from Lafayette High within the last 6 years, and all of them participated in performing arts. One of the girls who saw the rendering of the auditorium commented recently:

about time they have a real concert hall that hopefully won’t flood when it rains smh


Lafayette High serves the greatest number of students in the parish, with an enrollment of 2300. The school itself will be more than 300,000 square feet.
