Our history

Foundation Preparatory Charter School was built and founded by Head of School, Myrialis King. Mrs. King, with the support of the national organization Building Excellent Schools and Foundation Prep’s founding Board, wrote and defended the School’s charter application to both Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) and the Recovery School District (RSD). Foundation Prep’s applications were authorized by both OPSB and the RSD – making Foundation Prep the first school to be authorized by both entities in Louisiana’s history!

We continue to create history in our city, knowing that we cannot just tell our children to be leaders, but we must first lead the way for them. We are passionate about our students and school model, and are committed to being the leaders that we have all been looking for – teaching our children by example.
