Terrytown Academy is an expanding private school located in Terrytown, LA on the Westbank.

Opened in September of 1974, it has adopted as its guiding principle:

“Training today’s child for tomorrow’s adult”

Under direction of Mrs. Velma Friedman, Humpty Dumpty Day Nursery was started in 1969. After 5 years of providing daycare, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten services, Mrs. Friedman acquired the property located at 1503 Carol Sue Avenue, expanded the program to include first grade, and Terrytown Academy was born.

Upon the many requests of our parents, a grade a year was added to the Academy each year. The first eighth grade graduation was held in May of 1981.
