2017-18 Middle School Admissions Process
Lusher Middle School (6-8) enrolls current 5th grade Lusher students. Remaining seats are filled with candidates who have applied through the application process.
The application process for the 2017-18 school year begins October 10, 2016. Applications will be available online on this date or at the school’s Freret Campus.
Applications should be submitted in person from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Completed applications with all documentation attached must be submitted to the Freret Campus office at 5624 Freret Street no later than Noon, Friday, January 13, 2017. Out of state applicants should contact the Admissions Office at 504-304-3961.
Late applications are accepted but are processed only if there are openings available in the grade to which the student has applied and no applicants remain on the waiting list.
Incomplete applications are not accepted or processed.
All applicants must have testing results from the Full Battery Iowa Test of Basic Skills or Iowa Test of Educational Development. Parents must choose a testing date when the application is submitted. Students can earn a maximum of 20 points from the IOWA exam. Any student who has not earned at least 8 matrix points from the combined GPA and Arts Profile will not be scheduled for testing. Without this minimum score before testing, it would be impossible to attain the matrix score of 28 points needed to qualify for admission.
There are benefits to applying and testing early for Middle School applicants. All applicants completing the testing process by December 10, 2016 will receive early notification of the applicant’s matrix score and know if the child is qualified to continue in the application process. Anyone testing after December 10 will not receive information until April 10, 2017.
Lusher does not provide testing information over the phone. Test results are mailed. Please make sure your address is current.
