Registration is open for St. Landry Parish students only. The school is free to attend and transportation will be made available for all students admitted.

Students who apply beginning on Monday, April 5, will be granted entry on a first come, first serve basis until École St. Landry is at 100 percent capacity, they say.

Students do not need have a prior knowledge of French to apply.

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.
