LSMSA welcomes nearly 300 students to Natchitoches

Families from throughout Louisiana moved students into the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts (LSMSA)’s 110,000-square foot residence hall on Aug. 11-12.

LSMSA faculty, staff, and student ambassadors spent hours in the record heat helping 75 sophomore, 106 junior, and 103 senior Eagles unload vehicles and get settled into their new home away from home, just in time for the school to kick off its 40th anniversary in September!

LSMSA, ranked one of the World’s Best Boarding Schools by Fortune magazine, is a tuition-free, public high school for high-achieving rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a nominal room and board fee to cover housing, meals, and campus activities. The LSMSA Foundation offers assistance for families in need to ensure no eligible student is denied the school’s 40-year legacy of a premium college-level living/learning experience.
