Louisiana Key Academy celebrates first year

Louisiana Key Academy celebrates one year

Louisiana Key Academy Caddo Campus hosted a fundraising and donor celebration event on Tuesday, March 26, to mark its inaugural school year. Attendees included Dr. Laura Cassidy, LKA co-founder, LKA CEO Ali Landry, Principal Pamela Barker, LKA Advisory Board Member Dr. Philip Rozeman, and many donors, interested supporters, and LKA faculty. 

LKA Caddo is a tuition-free, public charter school that offers an innovative, evidence-based program with specialized instruction for students with dyslexia. Currently, LKA Caddo enrolls 90 students and experienced a significant milestone as 100% of the students presently enrolled are choosing to re-enroll for the upcoming school year.

As the school expands to include kindergarten through fifth grade for the 2024-2025 school year, they anticipate providing these services to 150 students for the upcoming school year. This expansion reflects their commitment to meeting the evolving needs of their students and ensuring they receive comprehensive support throughout their educational journey. Over the next several years, LKA Caddo will continue to add additional grades to reach 8th grade, providing a complete educational pathway for students with dyslexia. 

None of these achievements would have been possible without the generous support of LKA Caddo donors, the Shreveport/Bossier community, and the dedication of the LKA Caddo leadership team and staff. Their commitment to the school’s mission allows LKA Caddo to provide a tuition-free, high-quality education to students with dyslexia, regardless of their financial circumstances. 

“We are immensely grateful to our donors and the parents of our students for their unwavering support,” said Pamela Barker, Principal of LKA Caddo. “Their generosity and dedication have been instrumental in helping us achieve our goals and provide a nurturing educational environment where every student with dyslexia can thrive.”
