Angel Pickering is an elementary school student in Baker, Louisiana who likes staying at home to do her classwork, so she can be with her dog named Clifford.
Ashton Gorman lives in Minden. He did great in a traditional school, until the third grade where he started getting so stressed and distracted by the school day, that he could barely get through his homework. Now in middle school, he’s getting the extra help he needs.
All three of these students have different needs, but all are getting their K-12 education at what is now one of the largest charter schools in Louisiana: Connections Academy, a completely virtual public school.

After very careful review Warren Easton has elected to participate in the EnrollNOLA/OneApp process starting with the 2016-17 school year. This is a year earlier than mandated by OPSB. In doing so we immediately have the benefit of priority sibling enrollment and the official adoption of our academic pathways for Health Sciences, Engineering, and Law. Although our very successful internal open enrollment transparent lottery procedure for incoming 9th graders will be terminated, the lottery process embedded in EnrollNOLA/OneApp, although slightly different, will yield the same final selection results. For over 100 years we have proudly served the children of a diverse working class which includes our Mid-City community. We will continue to provide world class education for all children in our Easton family.
