This fall, St. Landry Parish students will have the option for learning at a new school. Ecole St. Landry, a public charter French-immersion school in Sunset is now accepting registration through March 31.

École St. Landry,will offer 96 kindergarten and 1st grade students a chance to be a part of the inaugural classes at the new school for the 2021-2022 school year (48 K and 48 1st grade). As with all public schools, École St. Landry will be free of charge to admitted students and transportation will be available for all students.

The application window opens Feb. 1 and closes at 5 p.m. March 31. Click here for information on how to apply.

The lottery will only occur if more than 96 students apply by March 31. If that is the case, the school says the lottery will be held the first week of April. Applicants will be selected by random computer drawing for available seats.

Applicants not selected will be placed on a numbered wait list.

Initially, the school will open in the old First Baptist Church of Sunset (671 Napoleon Ave.), but the school has partnered with the City of Sunset to lease the old Sunset High building, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Plans to renovate the building are underway.
