Realizing that many families and schools across the southern region have been impacted by the disastrous flood waters this past week, the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts has reopened admission for students who live in the affected areas to offer a safe and secure residence and a strong foundation for academic success.

“We look forward to welcoming families from those parishes who have suffered devastating damages and are looking for a place to continue their children’s education,” said Dr. Steve Horton, executive director. “LSMSA’s faculty and staff are ready to assist in any way possible so that these students’ educational endeavors are not interrupted or overlooked.”

Fill out the FASTrack application available at to be considered for immediate enrollment at LSMSA. Thanks to generous funding from the LSMSA Foundation, FASTrack applicants may have their fall semester room and board fees (including all meals and utilities) covered and additional financial assistance will be available to provide school supplies, clothing and other necessities. An admissions representative will contact you shortly after you apply.

LSMSA offers Louisiana’s best and brightest sophomores, juniors and seniors a world-class education in a unique, nurturing environment. Students live on campus, giving them access to a community of peers even after the traditional class day ends. Because LSMSA is a public school, there is no tuition to attend and only a nominal room and board fee which includes all meals, housing and computer usage.

Often named one of the Washington Post’s top 21 public-elite schools, LSMSA was recently ranked by Niche as the ninth best public high school in the nation, the best in Louisiana and having the top-ranked public school faculty.
