LSU School of Art 7th Annual Student Exhibition

Congratulations to Allie Efferson, Central Private Sophomore, whose art has been selected for the LSU School of Art’s 7th annual statewide juried art exhibition for high school artists.  

  • The LSU School of Art—one of the region's largest and most comprehensive art schools—will showcase selected works from students representing talent from all areas of the state. The exhibition's goal is to inspire young artists by providing a platform for their work to be displayed in a professional, artistic venue, thus giving them a taste of a professional artist experience. The exhibition will be an annual offering intended to showcase Louisiana's finest artistic student talent.

  • This 7th annual exhibition opened February 15th and will close March 11, 2023, at the Gallery in the newly renovated Barnes Ogden Art & Design Complex on the LSU campus (Formerly the Studio Arts Building). Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 – 4:30 p.m.
    Winners will be announced, and prizes will be awarded at a closing reception for the artists on March 11, 2023

Student Life

Social Activities

Students have the opportunity to attend three annual dances: Prom, Homecoming, & Sweetheart.

Community Service

"Love  your neighbor as you love yourself" - Mark 12:31

The culture of Central Private is one that is built on leadership and service. Students are encouraged throughout the year to participate in service and charitable projects. Many of those activities extend beyond the boundaries of the campus.

Spiritual Life

"For all who are led by the Spirit of God, are children of God." - Roman 8:14

At the core of Central Private is the belief that we are called to train children up to fulfill God's purpose for their lives. Every day begins with prayer. Elementary students memorize bible verses, and students in the upper levels attend Bible devotionals every month. Themes of Christianity and faith are engrained in the very fabric of who we are as a school and community.


ALma Mater

'Neath the oaks and trialing moss
There stands a place so fair.
Central Private sons and daughters
Long Shall gather there.
Red and Gray, how we extol thee,
Proud, strong, and free.
'Naught shall ever dim our mem'ry:
Faithfull we will always be.
