Celebrating 60 Years!
It all started with one man's dream back in 1962...Reverend JohnT. Curtis Sr. wanted a school that could represent everything he believed a school should have including a strong spiritual foundation, emphasis on moral and ethical values, a strong academic environment, and inclusion of all. So, with the support of his wife, Merle Curtis, they rented the second floor of Carrollton Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans and founded John Curtis Christian School. The rest is history!
Growing from 16 students on opening day to approximately 1,000 students today, the core foundations of providing a well-rounded education with quality academics in a Christ-centered family environment have remained strong. Over the past 60 years, traditions have been built and will be carried on for many years to come as the school fulfills its motto, “Building Champions for Life.”
