Thanks to an innovative partnership between Ochsner and Discovery Health Sciences Academy (Discovery), the Dr. John Ochsner Discovery Health Sciences Academy at the John Martyn campus will open in 2020. This high performing, tuition-free, open-enrollment, Jefferson Parish public charter school will educate approximately 700 students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade when it reaches full capacity.
Ochsner Discovery honors the legacy of Dr. John Ochsner, who firmly believed in investing in education so that Louisiana and its children could look forward to promising futures. Ochsner is committed to investing in the communities we serve and education is at the core of our mission. The school will help meet a need for more Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education in Louisiana by building on our long history of working with local schools, students and teachers to bring STEM education to the community.
Ochsner and Discovery Schools have shared a longtime educational programming partnership. We believe in their mission to provide a rigorous learning environment where students achieve academically, develop intellectual curiosity and practice environmental responsibility while exploring health and science topics and careers.
