Welcome from the Executive Director

Helen Keller once said that "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all." One of my high school teachers shared this profound thought in class one day, and to this day I feel that I have truly taken the “daring adventure” meant for me…maybe not to the extent of Keller’s...but for me, a Louisiana native who grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s, it was an unforgettable ride.
We all are equipped mentally to accept challenges. Often they present themselves at the most unexpected time, but when they do present themselves, there’s a reason for the timing. Since 1982, the Louisiana School has offered the challenge of a robust, incomparable, educational experience for Louisiana’s academically best and brightest.
Since then, more than 5,000 have accepted that challenge and are now some of the most prominent in their chosen fields of study.
Are you ready for that calling? Sure you are!
Here’s what you’ll gain from the adventure:
  • One of most transformative educational experiences you’ll ever hear of, inclusive of a living/learning experience that encompasses a true sense of community.
  • A place that you will learn to love as your home away from home, which will include a cadre of some of the most unique, caring and expressive faculty, staff and student body.
  • An honors high school education that will easily mirror one of a small, liberal arts school of higher learning, rich with theoretical and conceptual experiences that will prepare you to chase and capture all of your academic, cultural and career aspirations.
  • An individual sense of self that is confident, humble and as progressive as you want it to be. This palate is yours to develop, and you will have a support base that will welcome you, yet give you a most challenging intellectual and personal experience that you will carry with you forever.
Please take time to peruse our web page, which features a comprehensive showcase of academic and cultural offerings in Louisiana’s premier residential high school. I assure you that you will find your niche’ throughout our campus, whether it be robotics, dance, genetics, choir, or media design…just to name a few. And when you meet this challenge, the unlimited possibilities you will have with your LSMSA education will allow you to soar with the best.
Today, I challenge you to take that daring adventure with our current sophomores, juniors, and seniors. I assure you that you are in store for the ride of your life!
