“The good news is that we expect to have additional student seats, scattered across all grades, which will be open for the coming academic year,” said Board President Wade Henderson. “Since we already have a waiting list, we encourage parents to get their applications in now.”
Enrollment topped 1,200 students at Louisiana Connections Academy for the 2013-2014 year and is expected to expand by another 600 K-12 students for the coming academic year.
