RPS Admissions


We select our students without regard to sex, race, creed, or national or ethnic origin. We accord without discrimination all rights, privileges, programs, and activities to each of our students.

Ridgewood has an “Open House Daily” policy and invites you to come see us in action! Please call 504-835-2545 for an appointment. You may also call to obtain a school brochure with more information.


An application may be obtained from the school or downloaded from this site. Please submit the application along with the application fee to the school. Ridgewood accepts average and above average students in order to prepare them for success at the college level. We test for admission to Kindergarten through eleventh (11th) grade. There is no test for admission to Pre-Kindergarten.

The application is available for download as a PDF file. The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader may be required to view the file. (Clicking the Adobe Acrobat Reader link will take you outside of the Ridgewood website.)
