Children's Education

We are excited that you are considering New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary for your ministry education. If you are moving to the area, and have children, you will certainly be thinking about their schooling options.

--- On-campus housing is in the Orleans Parish school district ---


After Hurricane Katrina and the loss of many public institutions of education, New Orleans has adopted a unique system for school placement. Whereas in most of the United States children simply attend the public school associated with their physical address, here in Orleans Parish, the school assignment process is done through the One App process. The basic idea of this system is to rank the schools in order of your first, second, third preference and so on. After application is made the school district will notify you, within a few months, with your child's assignment. Be aware that the application deadline is normally the first of February for the following school year. Not every school, however, is connected with the One App process. If you are interested in a particular school check out their specific website for complete information.

Any information for the One App process can be found at


The NOBTS community is an ever-revolving cycle of students studying, graduating, and beginning the ministry to which they have been called. If, while you are attending NOBTS, you desire to begin or continue with home education for your child, there is a network of on- campus support, encouragement, and resources to help. Families have the opportunity to supplement their home education through group classes, social activities, and field trips. In August of 2014 the Doris Kelley Showers of Blessing Resource Building was established to provide a meeting place for NOBTS homeschooled children and other campus activities. This building is a product of the generosity of Stanley and Marleen Cheatham and friends of Doris Kelley. Our homeschooling families have benefited by having a place to meet for group classes and socials, as well as a wonderful resource library from which families can borrow curriculum and books.

We look forward to serving you while you are here at NOBTS. If you have any questions about schooling for your children while at NOBTS please contact our Homeschool Coordinator, Mandi Eastwood, at
