Education Corridor

When BIA and Broadmoor residents wrote their redevelopment plan in 2006 (the only New Orleans neighborhood out of 73 neighborhoods to do so), the Education Corridor became the heart of the Broadmoor plan. Broadmoorians realized that public education was a vital requirement for repopulating the neighborhood, and the Education Corridor, which runs from General Pershing Street and South Miro Street to General Pershing Street and South Broad Street, would would serve all residents with a charter school, public library and a fine arts and wellness center.

Broadmoor’s dream is quickly becoming a reality.

After a $29 million renovation, Andrew H. Wilson Charter School reopened its doors in 2010. The $6.8 million Rosa F. Keller Library and Community Center opened its doors on March 17, 2012, and the Fine Arts & Wellness Center is under construction. There are numerous free programs available for all ages within the Education Corridor with many more to come, so please make the corridor an education destination.
