Claiborne Academy is a private, non-profit, pre-kindergarten through 12th grade school located in unincorporated Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, near Haynesville. It was founded in 1969 as a segregation academy.
Claiborne Academy was founded in 1969 by a group of citizens from Claiborne Parish, including Louisiana State Legislator and White Citizens' Council leader William M. Rainach. Rainach also established the Claiborne Academy Foundation and continued to raise money for the school for many years.
Beginning with the 1969-1970 school year, two campuses of CA existed with one being in Haynesville and one in Homer. The campus of Claiborne Academy was built in 1970 as its present location with the 1970-1971 school years being the initial year of operation. Through the ensuing years, many additions and improvements have been made to the original facility.
The school was formerly a member of the Louisiana Independent School Association until 1992.
The school is accredited by the State of Louisiana and the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools, as well as holding Brumfield-Dodd status and participation in the State of Louisiana TOPS tuition program.
