Quick facts about InspireNOLA

Our students constantly rise above daily challenges to be leaders both in the classroom and out. Our elementary schools claimed four out the top five spots ranking progress in math for open admissions schools in New Orleans.

In addition to providing rigorous, high-quality academic instruction, InspireNOLA is dedicated to educating the whole child and meeting their social, emotional, and physical needs through wraparound services. The holistic InspireNOLA educational program also includes enrichment classes, numerous extracurricular activities including sports and clubs, advisory classes, after-school programs, and off-campus learning activities such as field trips, college visits, and volunteer opportunities.

InspireNOLA students are proven leaders in our schools and in our city, with several students heading initiatives in their communities, including rallies against youth violence and marches for social justice.

In addition, InspireNOLA athletes prove they are second to none. In 2019,  Karr’s track and field team brought home its fifth consecutive state title and its football team won its fourth consecutive state championship. McDonogh 35’s football team made it to the state semi-finals.

Our students at InspireNOLA don’t just face the odds; they defy them.
