Aurora Gardens Academy

Aurora Gardens Academy was a private school located in lower Algiers, on the Westbank of New Orleans, Louisiana at 2200 Hudson Place adjacent to the Mississippi River.

The school was founded by the Scullin family in the early 1960s and closed in 1994.

Part of the Aurora Gardens property was used in the Battle of New Orleans.

This was the only school in the New Orleans area that used the Carden Method of phonetics.

The original location of Aurora Gardens Academy is now occupied by a small gated subdivision. The 2200 block of Hudson place has been renamed "Navigation Court".

Famous quotes containing the words academy, aurora and/or gardens:

    When the State wishes to endow an academy or university, it grants it a tract of forest land: one saw represents an academy, a gang, a university.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    He for our saik that sufferit to be slane,
    And lyk a lamb in sacrifice wes dicht,
    Is lyk a lyone rissin up agane,
    And as gyane raxit him on hicht;
    Sprungin is Aurora radius and bricht,
    On loft is gone the glorius Appollo,
    The blisfull day depairtit fro the nycht:
    Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.
    William Dunbar (c. 1465–c. 1530)

    If I could put my woods in song,
    And tell what’s there enjoyed,
    All men would to my gardens throng,
    And leave the cities void.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
