St. Helena proposes academy schools
GREENSBURG- St. Helena Parish is aiming to convert its elementary and high schools into academies that would refocus the curricula at both schools.
Superintendent Kelli Joseph said St. Helena Central Elementary School and St. Helena Central High School use traditional curricula, which means they teach core classes and electives.
At an academy, Joseph said, a school can focus on a particular curriculum.
For the elementary school, St. Helena will place an emphasis on liberal arts and technology courses. For the high school, two tracks will be offered: college preparation and career readiness.
Joseph says the district also hopes to eventually offer International Baccalaureate programs at the high school.
