Summer @LSMSA to cancel all 2020 session

After exploring all the possible options and consulting with other academic camps in the state and nation, the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 sessions of Summer @LSMSA as the nation continues to battle COVID-19.

“It is unfortunate that we have had to come to this decision, but the health and well-being of our campers, their families, and our staff is very important to us,” said Thorn LaCaze, Summer @LSMSA Director. “We look forward to delivering the LSMSA experience to middle schoolers again next summer.”

More than 80% of the registrations were filled at the time of cancellation by middle school students across the state. All registrants will receive a full refund of their payments toward the $399 registration fee.

Summer @LSMSA has been a very popular option for students looking for academic enrichment in June. The camp is open to any student currently in grades 6, 7, or 8 who is interested in exploratory learning with some of the nation’s top ranked teachers.
