St. Martin’s Episcopal School

At St. Martin’s, we inspire curiosity in our students, the first step to developing a love of learning. Simply put, St. Martin’s believes in teaching students how to learn and how to think, not what to think. St. Martin’s Episcopal identity guides how we educate and shape children through developing strong moral and ethical values, compassion, and empathy in every student. We believe in respecting others, speaking honestly, offering kindness, and serving the community in celebration and worship of God.

Whether students are inside a classroom or outside exploring, our picturesque and expansive 18-acre campus, which includes a chapel, 500-seat theater, visual arts building, indoor swimming pool, two full-size gymnasiums, lighted football field, all-weather track, amphitheater, student center, two libraries, multiple playgrounds, three science labs, a Lower School STeaM Lab, and the Gibbs Family Center for Innovation + Design, is an exciting place where they learn and grow.

The St. Martin’s experience lasts a lifetime. Learn more at or schedule a personal tour today.

St. Andrew’s Episcopal School

St. Andrew’s Episcopal School is a co-educational, independent school with over six decades of experience in educating the mind, body, and spirit of young children from 12 months through eighth grade, with a strong focus on “Cherishing Childhood, Developing Character and Cultivating Leaders.” At St. Andrew’s, we encourage our students to ask “What if” questions that inspire curiosity and wonder. Our teachers are highly trained, expert wonder makers who nurture each child’s special interests and strengths, helping them believe in themselves and what they can accomplish. With a small student-to-teacher ratio, our teachers can do more than teach students – they can inspire them. We believe that building self-esteem is a crucial foundation for success, and our smaller class sizes allow us to foster a supportive and inclusive learning environment that helps children thrive. Join us at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and discover the joy of learning.

Ursuline Academy

Ursuline Academy is an all-girls Catholic school offering a diverse educational environment from six weeks through 12th grade. Founded in 1727, Ursuline Academy of New Orleans enjoys the distinction of being the first all-girls Catholic school in the United States. As girls progress through the academy, a highly interactive approach exposes them to increasingly complex concepts in STEM and the arts that go beyond learning the material. Ursuline girls learn to think creatively, articulate their ideas confidently and compassionately, and solve problems collaboratively. Ursuline’s all-girls environment empowers students to challenge themselves, explore outside their comfort zones, and expand what they are capable of achieving.

At Ursuline, students blaze their own trails—it’s the school’s legacy. Make it yours, too.
