  • The mission of Belle Chasse Academy is to educate our military-dependent children, no matter what their background or previous school experience, to fully achieve their personal and academic potential through the acquisition of core knowledge and the skills of analysis, problem-solving, communication, and global responsibility. Active-duty personnel are enjoined to register their child(ren) to attend Belle Chasse Academy as soon as they are in receipt of orders. This enables the school to plan effectively and ensures that your student has a space in the appropriate grade and setting. BCA is space-limited, and we cannot ensure that every dependent of active-duty personnel has space unless you assist us in planning. We are an open-enrollment school, so unless we have reserved a spot for your student, we must admit students who apply if there is a vacancy. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Please note that Belle Chasse Academy requires that any change to a child's daily dismissal must be made prior to 2 pm. (See full policy below.)

    In our continuing effort to ensure student safety and security, Belle Chasse Academy has instituted an addition to our email notification policy for dismissal changes, school excuse notes, or any other pertinent student information. All parents/guardians who send an email with the intent of changing their students' mode of dismissal, absence excuse or other pertinent student information must include a copy (photograph) of their identification card (military ID/driver license/employment ID) with their correspondence. This will help us verify that we are following the direction of the legal parent/ guardian.

    For any changes in the dismissal pattern of your child, please email the front office at before 2:00 pm on the date of the anticipated change.

    No verbal requests will be acknowledged.

    Students who are not regular/registered bus riders may only ride the bus with prior administrator approval.

    We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
    Any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Director of Operations, Michael J. Rocks
