Future School Facility: A new home to help us deliver on our promise to our students and our city

Albert Wicker School: future home to the New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School

The Foundation has launched a capital campaign effort to build a much-needed new school facility for our hard-working, dedicated students. Since Hurricane Katrina, Sci High has been housed in an elementary school, the Allen building, built in the early 1930’s. The Uptown location presents transportation challenges for students travelling to school from every neighborhood across New Orleans. The building is at capacity, lab spaces cannot support specialized STEM equipment, there’s no gymnasium for community gatherings or athletics, faculty and staff have little to no office space.

Your campaign investments will enable Sci High to serve and support its students in compelling new ways, providing them with the space and equipment they need to change the trajectory of our city. Sci High broke ground on the Albert Wicker School building, located near the biomedical corridor at the city center, in the Fall of 2018.
