BACK TO Public Schools

Breadth of coursework and opportunities for career exploration are the focus at this 9th-through-12th-grade Grant Parish campus. Students can choose to learn about forensics, prepare for a career as an emergency first responder, or master the acoustic guitar at Grant High School in Dry Prong, near Alexandria.

A low student-to-teacher ratio of 15:1 bolsters Grant's curriculum of college prep, honors and vocational classes. Its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) coursework includes anatomy and physiology, chemistry, physics, advanced math, environmental science and Advanced Placement and honors biology. Students can earn college credit hours through dual enrollment college algebra classes or explore vocational classes taught by experts in construction technology and industrial maintenance. Art, guitar, band, choir, forestry and home economics are among the varied elective choices. Grant also has a well-established Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program and nationally ranked ROTC drill team.

Through the athletics department, Grant students compete in golf, tennis, soccer, football, basketball, track and cross-country. Extracurricular opportunities include Beta Club, student council and Louisiana Youth for Excellence, an organization focused on positive behavior and character development.
