Welcome to the Bossier Parish School for Technology and Innovative Learning (BPSTIL). At BPSTIL, students learn how to combine academic skills learned in the classroom with practical experience in shop/lab settings. Many of these students are also dually enrolled with the Louisiana Technical College (LTC) and Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC), which allows them to earn college credit toward a technical diploma or an associate degree while still in high school. The majority of classes available at BPSTIL offer an Industry-Based Certification. Industry-Based Certifications empower students to gain meaningful part-time or full-time employment immediately upon graduation. Advisory boards from the business community assist in directing curriculum to meet the state and local employment needs.
Whether you decide to pursue post-secondary education at a traditional four-year college, a two-year college, or a technical college, or seek full-time employment after high school graduation, BPSTIL offers programs that may be beneficial to you. As a result of the technical training received in high school, many students find well-paying, part-time employment opportunities while still in school. These part-time jobs often lead to a meaningful full-time career in an exciting, interesting field.
