Welcome to Community Outreach Academy...

Community Outreach Academy has an open-admissions policy as established by the Louisiana Legislature and approved by the Board of Regents. Non-high school graduates to have reached the states required school age are eligible for admissions into programs that do not require a high school diploma or general equivalency diploma (GED).

     You  can convert your walk behind mower into mulching mower by changing your blade. Always purchase blade according to your model number.

The small engines that run lawn mowers need their oil changed just like car engines. Most mower engines need their oil changed every 20-50 hours of operation.  It depends on usage.
