Admissions Policy
  • Acceptance into Edna Karr High School is based on an open admissions policy. Acceptance is a student's placement by the OneApp office and pending student's promotion to the next grade level at the end of the 2018-19 school year, based on grades, state standardized tests, and/or number of high school credits earned.
  • Orleans Parish Residency is an enrollment requirement
  • Edna Karr High School admissions requirements do not exclude pupils based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, national origin, results of grades or I.Q. tests, or learning exceptionality.
  • Falsification of any part of the application renders the application ineligible and any admission offered would thereby be revoked.
Preferences will be given to students who meet the following priority criteria:
  • siblings of current Karr students
  • children of current InspireNOLA staff
  • current 8th graders at Alice Harte Charter School & Dwight D. Eisenhower Charter School
  • applicants residing in Algiers (zip codes 70114 and 70131)
