K-12 Online Charter School

HIGHEST PERFORMING ONLINE CHARTER SCHOOL University View Academy is Louisiana’s highest performing free, public K-12 online Charter School where students can excel using a rigorous state approved curriculum under the direction of  certified teachers.  Our students come from all corners of the state, from all backgrounds and University View Academy brings a quality school directly to their homes. The school was formed in 2011 and was previously known as Louisiana Connections Academy.   


University View Academy is authorized by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and is solely operated by Foundation for Louisiana Students, a non-profit corporation. The school is governed by a board of directors and the board meetings are open to the public.  

The school charges no fees for materials and no tuition. Online classes meet or exceed national and state standards while integrating the best materials and resources available to keep students engaged and challenged.


Children prosper when their parents take an active role in education. As learning coaches, parents use a hands-on approach to be closely involved in daily classes and they work with dedicated teachers to keep the students on track. THE ROLE OF THE LEARNING COACH
OUR SCHOOL WOULDN'T BE COMPLETE WITHOUT A MODERN DAY MASCOT

The school mascot is the UVA Lynx. The Lynx is derived from the lndo-European root word leuk which means "light, brightness" in reference to the luminescence of its reflective eyes. Just as the torch on the University View Academy crest symbolizes the individual light and spirit of each UVA student, the Lynx is similarly reflective of that same brightness and also has a double meaning through the powerful connection of the online "Links" our students utilize for their curriculum and learning.
