Our Story

My graduating class started off in a small building in 2017. We have grown tremendously in academics, knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. We have also grown as a family through tears, laughter, and support of one another. - Taylor Rowe (℅ ‘21)   

Our Story

Collegiate Baton Rouge (CBR) was founded in the 2017-2018 school year, originally housed in a six-classroom modular in the parking lot of another school. We started with 120 ninth graders in our founding class. Our second year we moved our campus to ancillary buildings of the old Living Faith Campus. In the fall of 2019, we moved into our permanent home: a brand new building designed to house our entire school community.

Each year since our founding, Collegiate Baton Rouge has received an A grade in growth, ranking #1 in growth across all open enrollment public high schools in the city. Likewise, our students’ growth ranks in the top ten among open enrollment schools statewide. We are recognized as a Top Gains School by the State of Louisiana. 

By the 2020-2021 school year, Collegiate Baton Rouge will grow to serve students in 9th through 12th grade. Our classrooms intentionally prepare students for college and equip them with the tools to deepen their understanding of the world and thereby strengthen their ability to lead it. We are proud to have a team that is truly devoted to excellence in serving all students. Collegiate Baton Rouge's staff boasts several Collegiate Academies Teacher Features and recipients of TNTP Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice Honors. 

Collegiate Baton Rouge athletic teams include, football, boys/girls basketball, volleyball, and track, participate in leagues regulated by LHSAA. Our band, dance, cheer, flag, and majorette teams get their steps in during Mardi Gras in multiple parades throughout the season, including Krewe of Mystique and Krewe of Artemis. In addition to our athletics and support team offerings, Collegiate Baton Rouge offers students the opportunity to participate in clubs during the school day with a special club block that happens twice a week. Our co-curricular and club opportunities include (but are not limited to) Choir, Coding, Art, Creative Writing, Cosmetology, and Step Team.
