Students who enter ESA's middle and upper schools begin a journey to independence that allows them to take responsibility for their own learning, to pursue their passions and to grow in a community founded on mutual respect and a love for learning.
To apply using a paper application, please complete this Application for Admission and return it to ESA with the $50 application fee.
If you haven’t already, now is time to make an appointment for a campus tour or a school day visit. During a school day visit, a student shadows a current ESA student in the same grade level. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to experience life at ESA.
Submit all relevant educational and testing information including:
Yes. ESA students come from seven different parishes around Acadiana, and ESA offers several morning and afternoon bus stops in Acadiana for Middle and Upper School students. Buses also run between the Cade campus and the Lafayette campus in the morning and afternoon for Lower School students.
On the Cade campus, we operate a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program. Students are given the choice of tablet, laptop or other device that meets the specific requirements outlined in our BYOD Minimum System Specifications.
