About Algiers Charter

The mission of Algiers Charter is to deliver and support education excellence in New Orleans.

Our Vision

Algiers Charter is a community-based charter network committed to student success in both college and life. Our five schools service nearly 3,500 students in the New Orleans Area. Every school is designed to support each child’s academic, social, and emotional journey. Our approach in education is tailored across each grade level to be engaging, rigorous, and motivating. We believe those qualities are necessary in order for students to develop the critical thinking and core knowledge needed to succeed. Our educators and staff come from all backgrounds and work daily to guide our scholars towards their full potential. We believe wholeheartedly education equals success for our students and our community – and we always strive to put children first, for a better future.

Our History

In 2005, Algiers Charter was founded by a nonprofit board comprised of Orleans Parish School Board members and neighborhood representatives. At the time, Algiers Charter was a community-based solution that provided the first educational options for families returning to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Today, it is is one of the largest independent Charter Management Organizations in the Gulf South, serving Pre-K through 12th grade students.

Our Schools

Algiers Charter is a charter network built by the community, for the community. All five schools are close to each other making Algiers Charter one of the few geo-centric CMOs nationwide and the only one in Orleans Parish.
