AMIkids Baton Rouge

Helping Louisiana kids discover their potential since 1987.

Our Story

Our Program

Founded in 1987, AMIkids Baton Rouge is a private nonprofit, staff-secure alternative education school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Our alternative school works in collaboration with local school districts, emphasizing the improvement of student citizenship and increasing academic functioning levels. Referred youth receive alternative education because they are unable to perform within the public school system, have displayed disruptive behavior, are facing expulsion or have learning disabilities or emotional handicaps.

AMIkids Baton Rouge uses the evidence-based, research-driven AMIkids Personal Growth Model © in offering dynamic programs and comprehensive services to treat each kid's unique issues, primarily focusing on education, behavior modification, and treatment.

Since 1987, AMIkids Baton Rouge has helped over 3,000 kids transform their lives and despite entering our program with prior offenses, 93% of our kids do not re-offend after graduating from our program. Our students return to their neighborhood schools, obtain their GED, or leave with a vocational certificate in-hand and/or placed in employment.
