Where We Serve: Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge

Sitting on the banks of the Mississippi River and at the junction of Interstates 10 and 12, Baton Rouge is the capital city of Louisiana. The population of the city proper is about 227,000, a number that reflects a recent post-Katrina surge in population. It boasts both variety and quality in food and music, and generally contains an eclectic mix of the cultures and ways of life found throughout the State of Louisiana. In particular, the city has a passionate love affair with its food; in fact, local teachers have been known to explain, "Our state monuments are found on every plate."

  • "I said "yes" to ACE because I watched my Catholic grade school close its doors this spring despite all the good it was doing in our community. I see a need for young Catholic educators to come to the need of these fantastic institutions that we owe some much to ourselves. "

  • "I realized late in my college career that nothing brought me more joy than teaching what I loved to people that needed it. I credit Catholic Education to forming who I am today, and this is my way of wanting to continue that transformative tradition. "
