We grow ourselves.

Our teams engage in regular observations, weekly coaching meetings and ongoing learning through professional development. We hold ourselves accountable for our commitments. This leads to incredible growth.


We put our teams first.

Our teams are tight-knit, collaborative and supportive. This means incredible results for kids.

We are the only education entity ever to be ranked the #1 Best Place to Work in New Orleans by CityBusiness.

Longevity is our norm.

We want our schools to be institutions. Last year, we retained 88% of our staff last year. We've have 100% Principal retention in our network since founding in 2008. Change is generational and we are invested in that.


You get to be a leader here.

At Collegiate, we empower everyone to be a leader. Our teachers see the needs of our students every day. We believe that makes them best positioned to find new and innovative ways to improve our schools. 

We get results.

Our students grow more than students at other schools in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Our students regularly outperform the Louisiana average on state tests — see our latest annual report for details.
