Application Process Overview
Lusher’s Lower School (K-5) admissions process is based on a two-part system: In-District (neighborhood) and Community (Orleans Parish residents). Lusher’s Middle School (6-8) and High School (9-12) students are admitted through the Community Application process only. All spots are based upon availability.
In-District Admissions (neighborhood) Lower School campus only
- The In-District process is available for those families who live within the Lusher school district. To view the In-District address list, please visit our website at www.lusherschool.org – and link to the Forms and Downloads page. In-district applicants must complete the application packet, submit the required documentation and provide proof of residency.

- Lusher strongly encourages parents living in the neighborhood to complete both an In-District Application and a Community Application. Students who gain admission through the In-District process only will not be eligible for enrollment if they move from the neighborhood. All in-district applicants should read the In-District Application process thoroughly.
