Young Audiences Charter School: Academic Excellence with an Artistic Edge
Young Audiences Charter School invites prospective students and families to learn more about their new school at the Jefferson Parish Magnet and Academic Programs Showcase on Monday, May 20th at 6pm. The event will be held at the Jefferson Parish Public School System offices, 501 Manhattan Blvd. in Harvey.
Recent research shows that students at schools with an arts integrated curriculum scored higher on standardized tests and academic measures than those at other types of schools, including academic magnet schools. Furthermore, after three years in the program, the achievement gap among the previously determined low, average, and high rated students had narrowed or disappeared. (PAIR, 2013)
Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton will open its doors in August to Jefferson Parish students entering Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade. Each following academic year, the school will add one grade to serve students in grades K-8 by Fall, 2018.
Enrollment is limited to 388 students. Parents are encouraged to visit our new website www.yacharterschool.org, call (504) 523-3525 for enrollment information.
Young Audiences has operated after-school programs throughout Jefferson Parish that promote academic excellence and social growth. External evaluations by SEDL (Southwest Educational Development Laboratory) have shown that students enrolled in Young Audiences after-school programs in Jefferson Parish schools outperformed their peers on standardized tests. In addition, students in these programs showed fewer disciplinary reports and increased school attendance.
