IDEA Announces Second Campus Location in Southern Louisiana Region

Today, we announced the second of two new IDEA campuses that will open in Baton Rouge in the fall of 2018.  IDEA Innovation Academy and College Prep will join IDEA Cortana Academy and College Prep to serve students in Baton Rouge in Kinder through 2nd & 6th grade in its first year. The school will add a grade level until it serves grades Kinder through 12 in 2024.


Parents, you can apply to an IDEA campus in Baton Rouge by clicking here and submitting an application for the 2018-19 school year.  Additionally, we will host a student lottery in January to randomly select who will fill spots at IDEA campuses for the 2018-19 school year.  The selection process is done randomly to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to attend an IDEA school.

“We are excited to announce the location of our second IDEA campus in Baton Rouge,” said Kenneth Campbell, executive director of IDEA Southern Louisiana. “We can’t wait to prove what’s possible in education for the students and families in this community. Our top priority is providing a high-quality education to Baton Rouge students as they prepare for college and life.”

Your student can join the IDEA Innovation Family today.

In the exploration of new regions for IDEA Public Schools outside of the state of Texas, no community made a larger impression than Baton Rouge. The achievement gap is starkly present in Louisiana—thousands of students are in need of a quality education and parents want more quality educational options for their children. IDEA is a community of public schools committed to serving the community’s unique needs. IDEA graduates have become successful college students who give back to their communities and create the opportunities of tomorrow.
