LAPLACE — St. Charles Catholic High School has established a satellite school through the Archdiocese of New Orleans as an extension of the school’s current curriculum.

The satellite school will be administered by Mr. Vincent Scozzari, which will also be assessing the needs of the satellite school and assembling a teaching staff.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, St. Charles Catholic has received over 700 applications for admission, but due to space has only been able to accommodate 178 of those new applicants.

“This whole situation has been touch on everyone,” said St. Charles Catholic Principal Andrew Cupit. “Hopefully, the establishment of the satellite school will help people to rest easy knowing that they will have a place to continue their education. St. Charles Catholic is committed to doing whatever is necessary to make this work for everyone. We will adjust our schedule by either starting a little earlier or releasing earlier in order to assist with the evening shift.”

An orientation and scheduling session will be held today from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in SCC’s library. The satellite school is set to begin on Sept. 26 and will attend classes Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“The satellite school is open to students in eighth through twelfth grades that have not yet been placed in a Catholic High School,” said Scozzari. “We will offer only the core curriculum subjects.”

There are no fees due at the time of registration. Students who have already sent their information need to contact the school office at 985-652-3809 to indicate if they are still interested in attending satellite school.

For students interested that have not sent their information, an application is available online at and faxed to the school at 985-652-2609.
