A Closer Look at Schools We'll Visit

Metairie Park Country Day School is a coeducational, nonsectarian, college preparatory, Pre-K through Grade 12 School, located on a beautiful 14-acre campus only minutes from downtown New Orleans. The School has a current enrollment of 730 students taught by 95 teaching faculty; 69 of whom have advanced degrees.
Ours is a culture rich in tradition, offering expanded educational opportunities for young people for more than eighty-six years. At Country Day, we understand that children learn best in an environment that is both academically demanding and appropriately supportive, so we have carefully created a rigorous academic program in the context of a committed and caring community. We encourage independence, foster critical thinking, and train our students to open their minds to limitless possibilities.

Founded in 1903, Isidore Newman School is a co-educational independent school that serves high-achieving and highly motivated students in Pre-K through 12th grade. In 2015, we opened our Green Trees Early Childhood Village for children ages six weeks to four years old. We are located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans blocks away from Tulane and Loyola University. With a current enrollment of just over 1,000 students, Newman is the only co-educational, non-sectarian, independent day school in the city of New Orleans. Our School enjoys a national reputation for excellence and achievement in academics, athletics, and the arts with our students matriculating to the most selective colleges and universities in the country.
At Newman we believe that the most fundamental element in teaching and learning is the relationship between student and teacher. We recruit nationally to attract the most talented educators. Our students engage and thrive at Newman because our teachers challenge them and care deeply about them as scholars and people. Essential to our school culture at Newman are high expectations in all endeavors and all areas of the School.

Our School motto articulates our mission: “Challenging the Intellect, Nourishing the Spirit, Celebrating Community."  We apply the latest and best educational practices in our classrooms while also teaching care and respect for one another and our surroundings.  We have fun celebrating both the traditions and new discoveries within our community and the world.  Trinity helps to nurture a child’s mind, body, and spirit through a fun and challenging program that offers the best in the academic disciplines, taught by a skillful, experienced, and loving faculty and staff. 

The Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans, founded in 1867, is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls offering education an instructional services from pre-kindergarten school through grade 12. Little Hearts, a separate Early Learning Program for ages 1 through 3 year-old girls, is also a division of the school.

At Sacred Heart, we challenge our girls with an education attuned to the circumstances and times in which we live, and we express an exceptional spirit of love – for our traditions, our students and our city. Customs and traditions that characterize Sacred Heart schools evolve over the years, but the vital force always remains the same: a deep personal love of God. This love inspires our students to share their gifts with others through lives of concern and service.
