In our Digital Arts and Technology Academy, we attract families seeking a tailored digital learning environment using cutting-edge tools and proven methods. We promote self-discipline, attendance, and achievement. 


We believe in the importance of student involvement and participation in extracurricular activities. From student council to athletics, we provide students with the resources and support they need to excel in and out of the classroom.

From Our Principal

Students at Southeast Middle Digital Arts and Technology Academy Our administration and faculty are committed to the families we serve in the Southeast Baton Rouge Region to assure our students make a successful transition to and through middle school. Our focus at Southeast Middle is to ensure Exposure, Preparation, and Access to high school, college, and all possible career paths. Our goal is to continue to increase our student’s literacy and numeracy skills to assure high school readiness and high school graduation. We are a 1-1 technology integration school, and all students receive Chromebooks, student planners, backpacks, and supplies upon registration each year. We prioritize teaching and learning to assure our Southeast Middle Cougars leave us ready for high school with up to 7 high school credits. We are excited you have chosen Southeast Middle and invite you to partner with us to make each day a great day to be a Cougar!
