The Lafayette Parish Schools’ Talented Program fosters the development of the artistic talents of kindergarten through 12th grade students identified by the Louisiana State Department of Education as having extraordinary talent in Music, Theatre or Visual Art.

Students who have met the state criteria may receive instruction in a specialized enrichment class taught by artist teachers who have special certification based on their expertise in their field. 

Their instruction is not a duplication of the regular curriculum in these areas, but an acceleration and enrichment of the subject through the guidance and mentorship of professionally experienced artists as a preparation for a lifelong involvement in the arts.
