There’s a new school in town – Capital Renaissance International School! You may remember that the Baton Rouge International School (BRIS) recently announced that it would permanently close at the end of this school year after operating as a private International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Baton Rouge for more than 20 years.
Baton Rouge Parents to the rescue!
However, Baton Rouge parents have joined forces with a plan to continue the International School legacy, the only multi-lingual school in the region. The school will be relocating with a new name and new administration. The new Capital Renaissance International School (CRIS) located at 10420 Baringer Foreman Road in Baton Rouge is currently enrolling students (6 weeks – 5th grade) for the 2022-2023 school year.
Capital Renaissance International School
The inaugural Capital Renaissance International School (CRIS) Renaissance Family Night benefits the NEW language immersion education program in Baton Rouge. This exciting event features live entertainment by living legend blues artist Kenny Neal and a variety of fun activities for the kids including miniature pony rides, face painting, and balloon art.
CRIS Renaissance Family Night is part of an inspirational effort led by a group of passionate parents determined to preserve and continue Baton Rouge’s only multilingual immersion education program following the sudden and unexpected closure of Baton Rouge International School (BRIS) in May 2022. This group has dedicated the last few weeks to school relocation and renovation, recruitment of educators and administrators, student enrollment, and has spent many nights and weekends preparing classrooms and for the start of the 2022-2023 school year beginning this August. School administrators and educators will be on hand at the June 25th event to provide more information about enrollment and our unique curriculum.
