After School Activities
After School Programs
New Orleans College Prep students have the opportunity to participate in numerous after school programs in the Arts, Athletics, and other areas. Students who participate in after school programs also receive time to do homework, free supper, and transportation home.
At New Orleans College Prep schools, we pride ourselves on our welcoming culture and commitment to quality. From our school events like Fall Fest, to our Community service program, to field trips and bi-weekly Celebration, we offer our scholars and their families several different ways to be involved in our schools and community.
Our CultureOpen Positions
At NOCP, we are looking for staff who go above and beyond for our students both academically and outside the traditional classroom role. We believe it’s imperative that our students not only make significant academic progress, but also that they learn the soft skills necessary to navigate life’s challenges.
While the transition to college can present many challenges for students, particularly for students who will be the first in their families to attend college, NOCP is excited to partner with College Bridge New Orleans to help our alumni navigate financial aid application, college enrollment, and first year success. Developed from an NOCP initiative, College Bridge provides success coaching and peer advising to support students and family throughout the college experience.
