Fortier Campus

Lusher Charter School's Fortier Campus is home to grades 6-12. The campus, built as a public school in the early 1930s, is the former home of Fortier High School, a storied high school program that was closed following Hurricane Katrina.

As Lusher's new home, the facility is undergoing significant renovations so as to accommodate the unique demands of the middle and high school programs. Once fully completed, the campus will feature newly refurbished laboratory facilities, studios for each arts discipline, including new dance, music, and visual arts studios, wireless networking and a glorious interior courtyard.

Framing the southern end of the courtyard is the Atlantic Bridge Community Resource Center (ABCRC), a multipurpose gymnasium facility made possible by a generous donation from Germany's Atlantik-Brüecke organization. We are now pleased to announce that renovations to the ABCRC have now been completed.

The campus suffered approximately $7 million in Hurricane Katrina related damage in addition to decades of deferred maintenance. Together with New Orleans Public Schools, Alvarez and Marsal, Tulane University, and numerous private contributors, Lusher has worked hard to restore the historic facility based on original architectural plans and the demands of a 21st century college preparatory and arts-based school.

Renovations to the 160,000 square foot facility are ongoing. If you would like to play a part in restoring the Fortier Campus to its former glory, please click on Support Lusher.
