Dear Prospective Parent:

I am honored to be the principal of GEO (Greater Educational Opportunities) Prep Academy of Greater Baton Rouge! We are currently accepting applications for students entering kindergarten, up to 6th grade 2018-2019 school year.

I was born and raised in Baton Rouge. I graduated from Southern University. I have over 30 years of experience as an educator and believe that educating children is a ministry. I have served as a teacher, principal, supervisor and executive director of school leadership. As a principal, my  school grew 20+ points in three years. I am one of eleven principals in the state of Louisiana that received credentials from the University of Virginia as a School Turnaround Specialist. Because of my varied experiences, I know what it takes to create a high performing elementary school.

GEO Prep Academy offers a rigorous college preparatory program that includes music, art, technology, educational field trips, guest speakers, and much more! GEO Prep’s academic program helps children who are below grade level, “catch up” and help students on or above grade levels, “move up”.

Through our use of data driven instruction and communication with parents we can ensure that we will consistently monitor your child’s progress and keep you informed. At GEO Prep, we believe that the road to college begins in kindergarten and we work tirelessly to ensure a successful future for your child that includes college.

Please visit our website at or call us at (225) 927-1500 to learn more about the exciting opportunities that await your child at GEO Prep Academy of Baton Rouge.
