School leaders will be on-site with more information for prospective students, parents, and teachers.

Open House Schedule:

Free dyslexia screenings will be available for students entering K–4th Grade for the 2023–2024 school year. Children with dyslexia may have difficulty with spelling but show great imagination. They can be described as slow readers but fast thinkers.

If your child is struggling with reading, please attend an open house or contact the LKA Caddo Principal, Pamela Barker, to see if Louisiana Key Academy would be a good fit for your child.

Louisiana Key Academy Caddo Campus will open in Fall 2023 and is a tuition-free public charter school serving children with dyslexia. LKA offers an innovative and effective evidenced-based curriculum within a full-day program for children with dyslexia.

The Caddo campus will open in Fall 2023, serving grades K–4, and scale to accommodate K–8 over the next few years. Though located in Shreveport, students of all districts and surrounding parishes are eligible to attend if accepted.

“We look forward to opening our doors to prospective families to experience our unique curriculum and approach firsthand,” said Laura Cassidy, Co-Founder and Board Chair. “Our specialized approach to teaching children with dyslexia is what sets us apart from the rest.”
