University View Academy, the state’s top performing K-12 tuition-free public online charter school, welcomes new students in all grades from any school districts recovering from the impact of Hurricane Harvey, announced Superintendent Dr. Lonnie Luce.
"University View Academy is proud to enroll children in all grades from impacted school districts, whether the school is private, parochial, or public," said Dr. Luce. He extended this invitation to impacted families in Louisiana and to those families who have relocated here from flooded areas of Texas.
Parents can begin the process immediately by logging into the school's website at www.UniversityView.Academy, visiting the school campus at the Russell J. Henderson Building, 4664 Jamestown Ave., Baton Rouge, or calling the school at 225-421-2900.
"The effects of Hurricane Harvey across Texas and Louisiana mean many people are displaced, homes are destroyed, and schools are interrupted. As a result, our completely online school is here to help," Superintendent Luce said.
Last year, University View Academy accommodated more than 160 students in Louisiana who whose brick-and-mortar school did not reopen on time due to flooding.
"At University View Academy, we are hoping to offer a sense of normalcy for students through our online classes. We are a high-rated public school specializing in college preparation, K through 12, with certified teachers and a state approved curriculum," said Dr. Luce.
Superintendent Luce said students who take this option will not miss a single day of school for the 2017-2018 school year and are welcome to return to their normal school once it is reopened. The school is acting with approval from the Louisiana Department of Education.
