Runnels | Independent School, Baton Rouge

Jr./Sr. High Experience

Runnels students have a multitude of opportunities to participate in athletics, arts, and on-campus clubs and organizations in a school community where they can make life-time friends. We offer a wide range of Division II sports from golf and bowling to baseball and basketball. We also have a comprehensive visual and performing arts program with three main stage drama productions each year in our high school, a full music (orchestra, strings, harp) program, ballet, chorus, and all types of studio art (including painting, sculpture, and graphic design). In addition, we offer more than 20 extra-curricular organizations spanning everything from Mu Alpha Theta (math honor society) to the Junior Classical League. We have activities and athletics to attract the interest of just about any student.

An important aspect of school life at Runnels is learning the value of giving back to others. Our students have had the privilege of lending a hand to many community agencies and charitable organizations over the years. Read more about service projects at Runnels here…
