Principal's Message

Our Vision

Belle Chasse High School will provide a rigorous education to all students to ensure they are college and career ready.

Welcome to our website!  Belle Chasse High School holds a very special place in my heart.  We have the very best students in the country and our teachers are equally amazing!  The small town family atmosphere truly makes this one of the highest performing non-select public high schools in the state of Louisiana.

Let me share with you a few quick facts that illustrate my point:

  1. We are proud to be ranked as a “B” high school in the state of Louisiana.  We have a 96.4 School Performance Score which has gone down a little bit from last year.  While this is still a great accomplishment, we are working very hard to reach 100 and regain our A status of the last two school years.  We are confident that we have the programs and personnel in place to achieve this goal.
  2. We are a technology rich school with Smartboards, Elmos, and  3 computer work stations in every classroom.  We have 8 complete computer labs with 4 rolling lap top labs available to our teachers.
  3. We have talented, caring, and certified teachers who are as rigorous as they are engaging. 
  4. There are many dual enrollment and articulated credit opportunities for students to leave with college credit. 
  5. We are proud to offer 7 AP (Advanced Placement) classes:  AP Human Geography, AP World History, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Language and Composition, AP Literature and Composition, and AP Calculus.  Students who earn a 3-5 on the AP test will receive college credit.
  6. We are not only a college preparatory high school, but we offer career readiness electives as well such as Food Service, Agricultural Science, P-tech, Medical Terminology, Pharmacy Tech, Law Studies, and Accounting.
  7. This year we have added FLEX to our schedule!  FLEX is a 35 minute intervention period to allow students to seek additional help in their core classes as needed.  Teachers may also pull students into intervention if they feel like they need additional help.
  8. Our athletic teams are very competitive.  This year both our Football and Volleyball teams advanced to the playoffs. Our Cross Country team had an outstanding season as well.  Our basketball, soccer, and wrestling teams are all off to a good start.  Our spring sports include:  softball, baseball, track, and golf.
  9. We are very proud to have one of the best Cheerleading squads in the country!  Our very own BCHS cheerleaders are three- time Louisiana State Champions and are two year National NCA champions and world champions!
  10. We have a very talented dance team and our band continues to grow and improve each year as well.
  11. We have many student activities during the course of the year such as Freshman Football Night, Fresh Fest, Sophomore Red Carpet Event, Junior Pajama Jam, Senior Hawaiian Night, Homecoming Dance, school dances, Junior Ring Ceremony, Class Olympics, Senior Picnic, and Prom. . .just to name a few!

So, now can you see why I love this school so much?  Not only am lucky enough to be the principal of this wonderful school, but I am also proud to be a 1988 graduate of BCHS.  I have a great administrative team who works very hard to enforce strict discipline in order to provide students with a conducive learning environment.  I also have a wonderful staff that ensures the campus is clean and well maintained.

Thank you for visiting our website.  If you would like a private tour of our school please call me and together we will walk the halls during the school day so you can see for yourself what goes on day in and day out in our classrooms, hallways, and commons area.  Please call my secretary at 595-6600 to set up your tour.  If you live in the Belle Chasse school district and are considering sending your child to a private school, please come take a tour and give us a chance. . .I think you will like what you see.


Go Cards!
