Going to University Academy of Central Louisiana was truly the best decision of my life! I have met the most wonderful people, my peers strive for excellence, and it is a very competitive environment! It is unlike any other high school, our junior and senior years are fully dual enrolled and some of my peers have 70+ college credit hours. The tuition is well worth it.. You are paying a fraction of the cost for a college education. I can’t say enough about this place, truly blessed to have chosen University Academy as my school of choice.

University Academy of Central Louisiana is an excellent school! We are taught by actual college professors in a college setting. The classes are rigorous and provide a great education to the students. Once you are a junior, you go to the LSUA classrooms and can explore many different classes and majors. This is a tremendous program, though many do not know about what University Academy entails. Love my school!
This school has been an eye-opening experience for me! The education is stellar, the staff is amazing, and the students are welcoming. I was scared for my first day at UA, but the whole environment made me feel like I had a second home. As far as the academics.. I have received 62 college credit hours, all of which will transfer to my University. I will have 2.5 years left for my Bachelors degree in Biology.
