Imagine unprecedented flexibility in when and where and even how much time each day is spent on coursework. Imagine real progress in learning regardless of your child’s learning style. Imagine homework done on time and evenings and weekends freed up for family time. This is what we do at eLearning through flexible, online learning delivered in self-directed formats or with the support of our experienced educational coaches. It’s what we call, learning for the way you live and you are going to love it!
At eLearning, we strive to meet your child where they are in their academic journey. Whether your child needs more of a challenge to stay engaged, is struggling with a particular course, or just needs to move at a slower pace, our individual learning approach will help them to reach their goals.
As we approach our second decade of using innovating methods to deliver education, we, like our students and families, have learned a lot. We have learned that every student can learn given the right combination of tools and support. We have learned that students are anxious to learn and want to go farther and deeper than one might imagine. We have learned that family is integral to success and involving the family is not only rewarding but deeply enriching. We have also learned that seventeen years is just the beginning of even greater innovation and success for us and for our students.
In our seventeen years of operation, we have seen the difference our individualized learning approach can make in the lives of both parents and children. We offer online bundles and single courses to homeschoolers and traditional school students. We also provide optional instructional services and onsite instruction for those in the local vicinity of a learning center.
eLearning began as a dream in the mind of Nancy Toups, a traditional school teacher who yearned for a way to reach all of her students in class. Despite her best efforts, it always seemed as though some students would fall behind while others were bored with the average pace.
The solution came to life in 1999 when she collaborated with Beth Marcello and Celeste Robichaux to found The eSchool, Inc. All three women had
experience with traditional education as well as homeschooling their own children, allowing them to see the advantages and disadvantages of both
methods of education. As more and more families requested services, eLearning was founded in 2006 to accommodate current and future growth
and expansion efforts.
Due to continued growth, our original locations in Thibodaux and Houma, Louisiana have relocated to larger facilities. We were also able to open four more Louisiana locations in Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, and Morgan City. In addition to our locations, we also have affiliate learning centers in Galliano, Louisiana, Golden Meadow, Louisiana, and Lafayette, Louisiana.
eLearning aspires to enhance the quality of education and family life in North America, and beyond, through personalized, guided, online education. We strive to provide a peaceful and positive environment that focuses on important values such as respect, excellence, health, and family.
Mutual Respect: We educate students as individuals and respect differences amongst students, parents, and team members. We provide
individualized learning plans and allow for selfpaced progression of academics. We emphasize good manners at all times and show respect for all
people, facilities, and our environment.
Excellence: We strive to help each student achieve his/her best through encouraging strong work ethic and healthy habits of study.
We focus on helping the student achieve his/her personal goals rather than standardized benchmarks based on age or grade level.
Health of Mind, Body, and Spirit: We believe that total health is the core of child development and leads to happiness and peace in
the heart of the student, allowing for high achievement in every area of development. We strive to help students, family and team members develop
physical fitness, healthy eating habits, and positive nurturing of the mind and spirit.
Family: We believe that a strong family is the essence of a child’s education and also the foundation of a good community, country, and world. We encourage parents to direct their children’s education while we support and serve as facilitators and consultants assisting parents in every area of development.
