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 four 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.
  • 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.
  • ACCE graduated its first cohort of student in 2016. Since then we have expanded our transition programming throughout the entire high school grade band, tripled our
    network of active community partnerships, and look forward to even more growth and development.

More detailed information about our academic performance can be found on our website by visiting and clicking 'Our Results.'

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.
