    Our mission at Lusher Charter School is to provide a developmentally appropriate learning environment in which high academics, comprehensive arts education, and the celebration of individuality and diversity enable each child to achieve as a learner, a person, and a valuable member of our society.  

    Our Project Pride values are kindness, respect, hard work and responsibility. 


    On February 17, 2022, the Renaming Committee voted on the parameters below to guide the new name selection process.

    The new program name shall:
    1. be a concept, theme, or other name that represents the school’s mission/values
    2. not be named for a person, living or dead.
    3. not focus on the arts so that the name is distinctive from NOCCA (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts).
