...the oldest independent school in Baton Rouge. Founded in 1965, Runnels began as a preschool and expanded into an elementary school in 1970. The Junior - Senior High School was added in 1983.
Runnels School is an independent, non-sectarian, coeducational, nonprofit institution whose purpose is to provide a college preparatory program of studies to students from age 2 through grade 12. The school - its faculty, administration, and curriculum in all programs - is fully accredited by the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Runnels School admits students of any race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
Our students take part in the fullest kind of learning - the kind that encourages not only academic skill and curiosity, but initiative and responsibility as well. This is the type of education that sets students on a course toward productive lives. Whether in the classroom or on the playing fields, they are made ready for the challenges yet to come.
We believe that what happens to us in youth sets a pattern for the way we choose to live the rest of our lives. At Runnels School, we help young people make the most of this time, and the best of themselves.
