Young Audiences Charter Schools to Host Open House for Crocker Campus in Uptown New Orleans on April 6

Date: April 4th, 2022
Young Audiences Charter School (YACS) at Lawrence D. Crocker, an open enrollment, arts-integrated school in Orleans Parish, invites prospective students in grades PK4-8 and their families to attend its Open House on Wednesday,  April 6, 6pm at 2301 Marengo St. in Uptown New Orleans (rescheduled due to inclement weather the week prior).

Open to Orleans Parish Residents, YACS recently expanded its arts-integrated public education to Uptown New Orleans at its Lawrence D. Crocker Campus.  Young Audiences Charter Schools also serves a PK4-12 school on three campuses in Jefferson Parish.

For more information on both schools, go to: www.yacs.org.  
At Young Audiences Charter School, the arts-integration curriculum reflects recent research from the arts education field that provides significant evidence of the value of the arts in the learning process.  Arts Integration combines the arts with the learning of core academic subjects. It supports educational achievement and improved student behavior by giving children both a “springboard” and a “safety net” for learning. The arts allow students to be more engaged in education-focusing on each child’s abilities and interests to provide support in academic achievement. The arts also provide increased opportunities for parental involvement in school, a key component to education.

Any student who enrolls in Young Audiences Charter School for Kindergarten is eligible to attend the YACS Summer Camp for free. Please call the school for details.
Parents are encouraged to visit the school’s website www.yacs.org, call (504) 304-6332 or e-mail admissions@yacs.org for enrollment information.

Opened in 2013, Young Audiences Charter Schools are open enrollment, arts-integrated charter schools operating in Jefferson and Orleans Parish.  Recent research shows that students at schools with an arts-integrated curriculum scored higher on standardized tests and academic measures than those at other types of schools, including academic magnet schools. (PAIR, 2013) Additionally, students involved in the arts have better attendance, fewer behavior referrals, increased class participation, and are more likely to report a love of learning.
