Our students come from all corners of the state and 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.

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

If I went to a brick and mortar school, I wouldn’t have as much free time as I do now. I’m able to finish my classwork much earlier in the day which then allows me to put more time toward my drama classes.

Our school wouldn’t be complete without a modern-day mascot.

The school mascot is the UVA Lynx. The Lynx is derived from the Indo-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. It also has a double meaning through the powerful connection of the online “links” our students utilize for their curriculum and learning.

Charter School Background 

University View Academy is a Type 2 Charter School authorized by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.

This designation means the school is run independently and is free to be more innovative but is held accountable for improved student achievement. University View Academy is operated as a tax-exempt, non-profit school, and the seven-member Board of Directors is the governing body. Funding comes from taxpayers through the state Minimum Foundation Program (MFP). All charter schools in Louisiana are held accountable to meet student achievement goals and organizational and financial performance goals either by a local school board or by BESE using the Charter School Performance Compact. Local school boards establish charter school performance goals with each charter school board and hold schools accountable through locally-designed performance frameworks.
