About Us

Our Mission

New Orleans College Prep's mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Our vision is to establish public schools of excellence - “private schools for free” - for at-risk and underserved children in New Orleans. Pre-Katrina, only 1 in 10 public high school students graduated from college. NOCP is on a mission to turn those statistics around and ensure ALL of our children have an opportunity to succeed in college and beyond.

The NOCP Difference

NOCP Difference

Prep for College

  • A rigorous, PreK - 12th academic path for our students with integrated test prep throughout.
  • 1:1 college counseling and a robust Alumni Support Program for the journey to and through college.
  • Local and out-of-state college campus trips in 5th through 12th grade so our scholars can visualize their goal.
  • Free tutoring and summer school to help all of our scholars catch-up academically and succeed.

Prep for Life

  • Values-based education focused on excellence, caring, respect, perseverance, responsibility and joy.
  • "Advisory" mentoring program to provide personalized support to our students.
  • Co-curricular learning during the day and after-school with innovative programs in the Arts and Athletics.
