About LAA+ Schools



Louisiana A+ Schools is a research-based whole school network with a mission of nurturing creativity in every learner through an arts-integrated school network.



Louisiana A+ Schools began in 2013 as an initiative of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts. In 2017, after several years of success, the Rodrigue family transitioned LAA+ into its own public non-profit organization to ensure the growth and long-term sustainability of the mission. LAA+ is supported by GRFA and the leadership of a diverse statewide board.

Watch the video below to see what students at LAA+ Schools have to say about arts integration, academic success, and having fun in the classroom!




There are now 18 schools in the LAA+ network

for the 2016/2017 academic year.
