IDEA Public Schools Opens Their Doors in Baton Rouge

Today, IDEA Public Schools kicked off its first day of school in the Baton Rouge area, opening of two schools in its first region outside of Texas.  IDEA Baton Rouge is the home to IDEA Bridge Academy and College Prep in North Baton Rouge (located on N. Airway Drive next to Lowe’s at Cortana) , and IDEA Innovation Academy and College Prep in South Baton Rouge ( off of Gardere Ln and Innovation Park Dr). IDEA staffs over 100 employees that will welcome nearly 1,000 founding students for the first day of the 2018-2019 school year.

“We are excited to finally have our IDEA schools in Baton Rouge open,” said Kenneth Campbell, executive director of IDEA Southern Louisiana. “We look forward to serving and supporting the children of Baton Rouge this school year and partnering with families and community members as we set students on the right path, together. Our top priority is providing a high-quality education to Baton Rouge students as they prepare for college and life.”

IDEA Bridge (North BR)  is a state-of the-art facility that will serve grades K through 3 & 6. The school was titled ” Bridge” after Baton Rouge Bridge Academy, previously located at Glen Oaks Middle relinquished their charter this summer and joined forces with IDEA.  IDEA Innovation (South BR) will serve grades K through 2 & 6. They both will grow to serve grades K-12 when fully scaled.

Over the last 18 years, IDEA has grown from a small school with 150 students to the fastest-growing network of tuition-free, Pre-K-12 public charter schools in the United States. From Pre-K – 12th grade, IDEA Public Schools is focused on sending 100% of students to college. For the last 12 years, 100% of IDEA graduates have been accepted to college.

The school will still be actively enrolling students. For more information on IDEA Public Schools, visit
