Young Audiences Charter School to Host Open Houses

Young Audiences Charter School (YACS), the only arts-integrated charter school in Jefferson Parish, invites prospective students, along with their families, to attend its Open Houses.  Young Audiences Charter School will hold three Open Houses for Kindergarten through 10thgrade at its Kate Middleton Campus located at 1407 Virgil St., in Gretna. The Open Houses will be on November 9 from 12-2pm, January 29 from 6-7pm and March 28 from 12-2pm. The Open House for Kindergarten through 1stgrade will be at the Little YACS Campus at 3400 6th St. in Harvey on January 29 from 6-7pm. 

Young Audiences Charter School also invites prospective students and families to schedule a tour of the school if they cannot attend the Open House. Young Audiences Charter School (YACS) is currently building a new state-of-the-art facility on Burmaster St. in Gretna, which will house middle and high school students.  The new $25 million campus will be conveniently located behind the current school located on Virgil St. The school will be situated over an 11-acre area with 177,000 square feet of space, including a black box theater, state of the art classrooms and science labs, green spaces, sports facilities, and art studio space. The building is expected to be completed by August 2020. 

This year, Young Audiences Charter High School welcomed its inaugural class of 9thgraders to its temporary location at the Salem Lutheran Campus, 418 4th St. in Gretna. Young Audiences Charter School also serves lower grades at its Kate Middleton Campus, 1407 Virgil St. in Gretna (Grades 2-7) and its Little YACS Campus (Kindergarten and 1stgrade) at 3400 6th St. in Harvey. As a Type 1 Charter authorized by the Jefferson Parish Public School System, Young Audiences Charter School is currently open to any Jefferson Parish student entering Kindergarten through 10th grade. YACS will add a grade each year to eventually become a full PK-12 school.
