Searching for the right school is tough. There’s a lot to consider: location, teacher/student ratio, tuition…

To help you find the right one, Nola Family has compiled a listing of Orleans and Jefferson Parish schools, including private, parochial, public/charter, montessori, and more.  

Orleans Parish 

A note on NOLA public schools: The traditional public school does not exist in Orleans Parish. Instead, it offers a discrete web of charter schools allowing parents to apply to any school in the city. The OneApp portal, accessible through NolaPublicSchools.com, is a one-stop application process for most of these schools. Parents must apply directly to each school that does not participate.  

OneApp’s early window deadline for 2020–2021 is January 15; the main round deadline is January 31.
