ADC Initiatives

New Orleans Military & Maritime Academy (NOMMA)

ADC was created in part to help fund the development of the New Orleans Military & Maritime Academy (NOMMA), a Type-2 public charter school serving approximately 1,000 students – 8th through 12th grade. NOMMA is the #1 open enrollment high school in the state as noted by the Louisiana Department of Education, and 100% of its student body are cadets of the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Program.

Art in Algiers

A vision of one Algiers resident, Art in Algiers is a collaboration between ADC and CVU (Community Visions Unlimited) to help beautify Algiers. Local artists created 13 unique painted artworks on Algiers traffic signal control boxes.

Algiers Fest

Since 2015, ADD has hosted a free annual festival in the fall, Algiers Fest celebrates our military and community. This family-friendly festival is open to the public and presents live music, local artists, children’s activities, food vendors and more. Due to the COVID pandemic, the 2021 festival has been canceled.
