• Simon Youth Foundation Educational Center

    The purpose of our dropout prevention program, Simon Youth Academy is to provide in-school and out-of-school students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma or high school equivalency.
    • The Simon Youth Academy may be utilized only by students currently in a Calcasieu Parish public high school or who were once enrolled in a Calcasieu Parish public high school.
    • An in-school student may apply with their high school counselor.
    • Students receive education services from teachers and tutors utilizing the approved virtual program provided by the Calcasieu Parish School Board.  Special education services are provided when appropriate.
    • The curriculum will be individualized, diagnostic, and prescriptive.  Instruction will address state and grade-level standards.
    • Students will be evaluated using the parish grading policies. All parish and state-mandated testing procedures will be followed.  

    Simon Youth has two local academies. The Simon Youth Academy at Prien Lake Mall and the Simon Youth Calcasieu Parish Academy, located in Sulphur. “
