I loved the over-all environment of the school. The teachers genuinely cared for their students and it was evident in and outside of the classrooms. The language, mathematics, and science departments are exceptionally, especially the language department. ESA prepares their students for college in not only academic ways, but in many other ways. By having a small student body, ESA influences its students to learn how to interact with teachers, overcome social strife, resolve personal and professional issues, and caters to each individual student by helping them find their own personal best way to learn. This school offers a one-of-a-kind experience that will benefit each student through their life.

I went to the Episcopal School of Acadiana for the majority of my school life and I believe that it is highly overrated. Yes, the academics are very good, but life on the campus does not reflect what the school claims it to be. The classrooms need to be renovated, they are in very poor condition, there is no cafeteria so when it rains the students have to eat on the gym floor. The honor code that is forced upon the students is just a way to scare the students into not cheating. Not only is there an "honor code" that no one follows, there is an "honor council" where your own peers judge you for your actions. Students should not judge other students. The students are very academically competitive and socially awkward. The teachers are also very involved in the students lives outside of school. Overall, it would be more beneficial to send your child to a public school like Lafayette High and take advanced classes there.
Our family has grown up with ESA. Three kids from grade school to 12th - youngest graduated last year. All three with very different levels of ability but all three very successful in their own way here. The teachers and admin have been nothing short of phenomenal. If you are looking for a traditional - reading writing and math - program, this may not be a good fit. IF you want your kids to learn to think and reason and problem solve, there is no better option in our area. We have a pretty diverse teacher population - more male teachers than any other school I have seen. While no school can provide everything for everyone - ESA comes pretty close.
