Dear Prospective Students and Parents:

Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in Algiers Technology Academy: a High School for the Future where the mission is “to prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century and beyond” and the motto is “Failure is not an Option”.

Algiers Technology Academy (also known as ATA) opened in August 2007 as one of the schools in the Algiers Charter Schools Association.  We have enhanced the Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum (English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science) with honors classes, innovative programs and the integration of technology. Student enrollment will not exceed 400 for grades 9-12 with a computer to student ratio of 1:1 and student to teacher ratio of 25:1.  We at Algiers Technology Academy address the needs of the individual student and implement the grade-level expectations for each course as recommended by the Louisiana Department of Education to ensure student eligibility for the TOPS (Taylor Opportunity Program for Students) state scholarships upon graduation.  Here at ATA, students come first and teachers are dedicated to helping each and every student find success. This school year, ATA is excited to offer certification in the following areas which will even impact our incoming Freshman:
