About BMA

Bishop McManus Academy is a Christian academic community consisting of grades PK2 – 8.  Our campus is located on the grounds of City Church of New Orleans, a non-denominational church serving the Greater New Orleans Area.  

Today, Bishop McManus Academy continues the philosophy of education which first gave rise to the Academy:

  • God, the infinite source of all things, shows us truth through scripture, nature, history, and above all, in Christ.
  • Persons are spiritual, rational, moral, social and physical; they are created in the image of God.
  • We ought to know and value ourselves, other persons, the universe and God.
  • Education is a process that involves the whole person, developing the knowledge, values and skills that enable the individual to change freely.
  • Teaching and learning are most effective 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.
