Recovery Update 9/15/2021:

Max Parents: After more consideration and the announcement of north Lafourche opening on September 27, 2021, we at Max feel it would be appropriate to re-open at that time, as well. Administration will be in discussion with the Board regarding how to make up lost time. It may be necessary to add 3 weeks to the end of the school year.

If your student is unable to return on September 27, 2021, or will need assistance to do so, please call the school at 985-227-9500 or email We will work with each situation to support our students. Thank you.

Please monitor the MAX Charter website and Facebook page if capable for any updates or changes.

When I was asked to write a few words about how MAX has helped me, I had no clue on what I should say. Not because MAX hasn’t helped me, but because of all the tremendous things that being a student at MAX has taught me spiritually, mentally, and physically. First off, MAX has taught me to never give up despite the challenges; there is always away around leaning. It may not be the same strategies that everyone else uses but, it is what helps me learn best at the end. Lastly, God always has a plan.

-Maggie Broussard

My 6 years at Max has given me self-esteem, confidence, and knowledge. I’m in my 2nd semester of college and proud to say I have maintained a 3.8 GPA. I have no doubt that without MAX I would not be where I am today.
