Academie Lafayette is a unique school with a history long intertwine with Kansas City Public Schools. According to an article written by one of the original Board members, Dr. Paul Garcia, in an American Council on Immersion Education newsletter in 2001, Academie Lafayette, first Charter Public School in Missouri, is an independent Public Charter School unaffiliated with but nevertheless outgrowth of once-extensive Immersion Project undertaken by Kansas City, Missouri, School District. Following a federal court order in November 1986 to desegregate public schools, KCMSD embarked upon an ambitious magnet School Project. The array of programs offer includes ten Immersion Schools, K-12, where French, German, or Spanish are offer. A subsequent court order in June 1995 marked the beginning of the collapse of the entire KCMSD magnet School Project despite teachers ' skills and dedication and the academic success of Immersion and arts programs. By 1999, German program and the 9-12 portion of French and Spanish programs had been eliminate; French and Spanish programs, grades K-8, were reduced to two sites. Further, Immersion content subjects were curtail. Parents, especially those from one Immersion site, were instrumental in seeking Charter from the State of Missouri during late 1998. Academie Lafayette was inaugurated in August of 1999 to 250 boys and girls in kindergarten through 8 grade; most children in grades 1-8 arrive as transfers from KCMSD. Academie Lafayette was originally located in the classroom wing of Temple Bnai Jehudah, located at 69 and Holmes Road, one block west of Troost Avenue. The Schools original name was Kansas City Foreign Language Charter School. It was changed in 2002 for two reasons to shorten the name and to reflect the historic connection between the United States and France because of the heroism of Marquis de Lafayette in the American Revolutionary War. In 2002, school was notified that Temple had been purchased by the founders of another Charter School, University Academy, and they would have to move. In 2003, School Board purchased the former JC Nichols School building and moved another block west to 6903 Oak Street. Because of dramatic growth, in 2012, School Board purchased a second building, former Ecole Longan, at 34 and Cherry, to house kindergarten through 2 grade classes. Ironically, this building was the location where the original group of parents and educators first conceived the idea for French Immersion Charter Public School. After successful completion of 3. 5 million Give to Grow Capital Campaign in 2014, sixclassroom wings were built at Cherry campus to accommodate the growing number of students. Approximately 450 kindergarten through 3 grade students call Cherry home. Remaining 4-8 grade students spend their time at Oak campus. In 2017, Campaign to implement Academie Lafayette's K–12 growth plan starts with the first phase consisting of growing K–8 program.
