Hear from Mrs. Douglas about why GEO Prep is the best place for YOUR child:
I am excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. I am excited to be the Chief
Academic Officer of GEO (Greater Education Opportunities) Academies of Greater Baton
Rouge! We are currently offering opportunities for students at four GEO locations in the Greater
Baton Rouge area for students entering kindergarten-11th grades for the 2021-2022 school year.
Some of you may be interested in knowing a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Baton
Rouge. I graduated from Southern University. I have over 35 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 Principal and school instructional leader in my
prior school, we 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
GEO Academies of Greater Baton Rouge will offer a rigorous college preparatory program that
includes music, art, technology, educational field trips, guest speakers, and much more! GEO’s
academic programs will help children who are below grade level “catch up”, “keep 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 our academies, 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. We have expanded our schools to now
include 11th grade in our high school. I am excited to announce that next year we will be
graduating our first class from GEO Next Generation High School.
I am looking forward to having each of our buildings full of students and staff and all of the
energy they will bring. Please visit our website at www.geoprep.org or call us at (225) 927-1500
to learn more about the exciting opportunities that await your child at GEO Prep Academies of
Greater Baton Rouge.
