Helix Legal Academy is a free public school serving grades 6-8. Helix empowers students through a deep understanding of the complex legal system. The instructional vision of the legal academy is built around five essential legal competencies: advocacy, argumentation, critical thinking, research, and negotiation, which are reinforced throughout the school year in all subjects. Situated in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge, the legal academy is only steps away from state and federal courthouses, dozens of law firms, the Louisiana Legislature, and City Hall, and is centrally located to provide students with real-world exposure to the legal profession. While students develop key legal competencies and engage with legal professionals, they also develop STEAM-related skills through an elective that follows the Project Lead The Way curriculum.
