For over 60 years, Kehoe-France remained at the forefront of academic excellence in New Orleans, providing generations of children an education rooted in integrity, built on the dedication and experience of the area’s most talented educators, and focused on ensuring the success of each student in high school and beyond.
Founded by Patricia Kehoe and Frank A. France as a day camp in the summer 1949, Kehoe-France’s Southshore campus in Metairie welcomed an inaugural class of 42 preschoolers in 1962. By 1996, the school’s reputation for success had reached across Lake Pontchartrain to Covington, where the France family opened the school’s Northshore campus in response to increasing demand from local families.
Today, Kehoe-France is home to more than 600 curious, creative, and confident learners from infants to 7th grade. Joining the International Schools Partnership in 2017, the schools secured their long-term stability while continuing to build on the legacy of its founders by offering an innovative, future-focused curriculum framework in the same serene and wholesome environment cherished by this community for decades.
Kehoe-France is committed to producing students of uncommon character and potential, all while encouraging the importance of family, community, and fun every step of the way.
