About BMA

Bishop McManus Academy is a Christian academic community consisting of grades PK2 – 12. As such, Bishop McManus Academy continues the philosophy of education which first gave rise to the Academy, summarized in the following propositions. Our campus is located on the grounds of City Church of New Orleans, a non-denominational church serving the Greater New Orleans Area.

God, the infinite source of all things, has shown us truth through scripture, nature, history, and above all, in Christ.

Persons are spiritual, rational, moral, social and physical, created in the image of God. They are, therefore, to know and value themselves and other persons, the universe and God.

Education, as the process of teaching and learning, involves the whole person, developing the knowledge, values and skills which enable the individual to change freely. Thus it occurs most effectively when both instructor and student are properly related to God and each other through Christ.

Best reading program in the state! Our students read fluently by age 5.

Our kindergarten students impress Senator Elbert Guillory with their advanced reading abilities.


Alumni Spotlight: Jestin Quiett, Class of 2008

Jestin Quiett started attending BMA when he was in the 3rd grade, after having been put out of several schools in the city of New Orleans because of his misbehavior and disrespect towards authority. His mother was all out of options, until she found BMA. Jestin's strong will was met with the undeniable presence of God he experienced in BMA's chapel services. His life began to drastically change. Jestin began to see that God had a purpose for him and gave him a gift in the field of technology. Seeing his passion, the staff diligently worked to cultivate his gifts. By the end of his senior year, Jestin had made a complete turn around. He went on to get his Computer Technology degree from ITT Technical Institute. Jestin now works full-time in ministry using his gift of technology while also running his own computer technology business, JQ Technologies, LLC. Jestin's story is only one of many here at BMA.
