About New Orleans College Prep
NOCP is producing significant student achievement gains for our students, 98% of whom are African-American, low-income, and traditionally underserved by the New Orleans school system. Recent highlights of our achievements include:
- Walter L. Cohen College Prep achieved a 100% college acceptance rate for three years in a row.
- Walter L. Cohen College Prep has consistently improved students’ academic performance and achieved a "B" school performance score (SPS); nearly doubling its SPS in just 4 years.
- Sylvanie Williams College Prep has fully integrated social justice into their academic programming and has included multiple trips to historic sites throughout the South.
- Our most recent takeover of a failing school, Lawrence D. Crocker College Prep, achieved the highest growth in the city on the state tests in 2014, growing from the lowest performing elementary school in the city to scoring above the district average after the first year of NOCP management.

We are very proud of our school staff, parents, and scholars for these achievements, but we have much more to accomplish in order to realize our mission of 100% of our students prepared for success in a rigorous 4-year college.
