Catholic High School to Open Doors to New Orleans Students

Catholic High School of Baton Rouge is opening its campus to allow Brother Martin High School of New Orleans to operate during the evening hours.

Classes for Brother Martin will begin on Monday, September 19 and run from 3:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Registration will be accepted from Brother Martin students who have relocated in Baton Rouge and applications will be accepted from boys who were enrolled at other Catholic high schools in New Orleans.

Registration and applications for students in the 11th and 12th grades will take place on Thursday, September 8 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and for 8th, 9th and 10th grade students from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on September 9 in the main lobby at Catholic High School, 855 Hearthstone Drive.

‘Hurricane Katrina left Catholic High relatively unscathed and provided us with the opportunity to reach out in solidarity to provide Catholic education to many young men who are unable to continue their school work,’ commented Catholic High School President Brother Francis David, SC.

‘CHS will open its campus to Brother Martin High School and allow the school to use our facilities to continue to provide education in the tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart,’ added David.

Catholic High School will continue its normal operations including extracurricular and athletic programs.

By opening its campus during the evening hours, CHS can accommodate a much larger number of students rather than taking a more limited number into its current student population. CHS estimates that between 450 and 600 additional students will be able to enroll at Brother Martin in Baton Rouge.
