Willow Charter holds parents meeting

Willow Charter Academy will hold an enrollment information meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday for interested parents to learn more about the school.

At the meeting, parents will learn about the school’s Moral Focus curriculum, hear from school leaders and have a chance to ask questions and tour the school.

The school, located at 1818 Evangeline Thruway, is operated by National Heritage Academies, a Michigan-based charter school management company with local oversight by a board that includes at least two members from Lafayette.

The school began in August 2014 for grades kindergarten through fifth, and in August will add sixth-grade classes.

In subsequent years, grades seven and eigh will be added.
