COVID-19 Updates and Information

To our NOCP Community, 

In response to the COVID-19 virus, known as the Coronavirus, the New Orleans College Prep administrative team, consisting of both central and school-based administrators, has developed an Emergency Readiness Plan for the 4 weeks of school closure that was ordered by Gov. Edwards on March 13, 2020.


Accordingly, students and the public are not allowed on campus and only essential personnel will be on campus to do our part to ensure deep cleaning as well as social distancing. However, during the school closure, schools’ instructional programs will continue utilizing both online and paper-based solutions to ensure continuity of student growth. Below you will find resources for our parents and families regarding instruction and food distribution. We encourage you to check this web-page and our social media accounts for continued updates during this period.
