Since 2006 Young Audiences has operated afterschool programs in schools throughout Jefferson Parish that promote academic excellence and social growth. External evaluations by SEDL have shown that students enrolled in Young Audiences afterschool programs in Jefferson Parish schools outperformed their peers on standardized tests. In addition, students in these programs showed fewer disciplinary reports and increased school attendance.
Young Audiences Charter School will open its doors in August, 2013 as an open enrollment charter school. Enrollment will be open to any student entering Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade that resides in Jefferson Parish. Each following year the school will add one grade to serve students in grades K-8 by Fall 2018. The location of the school has not yet been finalized.
