HOW to APPLY
VAL's open enrollment for the 2021 - 2022 School Year is March 1 - March 31, 2021, and continues as long as space is available. To apply for enrollment, you MUST complete a registration packet at the VAL office and provide proof of residency (such as water, gas, utility bill), as well as a copy of the child's birth certificate and Social Security card. If you cannot pick up the packet at the VAL office, please call (985) 446-2877, toll-free (855) 446-2877 or download from the main web page.
Office hours during the Fall and Spring Semesters are 8:00 to 4:30 on school days. Complete this application packet and submit it to the VAL Main Support Site office, 639 Harrison Street, Thibodaux.
If you live outside Lafourche Parish, please read the Out of Parish information before applying: VAL's charter allows enrollment of students who live in Louisiana but outside Lafourche Parish after the open enrollment period closes, if openings remain, and with the permission of the superintendent of the parish where the student resides. VAL cannot guarantee enrollment, as the final decision is from the superintendent in the parish of residence.
Please contact your superintendent if you are interested in applying for VAL and you live outside Lafourche Parish.
