History

Belle Chasse High School, "Home of the Fighting Cardinals," was founded in 1928. The original school was a single brick building. As the community began to grow, a wooden building was placed adjacent to the school. In 1958, the present facility was opened and the old brick building remodeled. The old building was given the name the "Gray Building" because of the color it was painted. In 1998 a 2.5 million dollar refurbishment of the school was completed. Modern science labs and classrooms, a new music building, a renovated auditorium and gym are some of the improvements. Belle Chasse High School continues to rank as one of the best schools in the New Orleans metropolitan area.


School Crest

The school crest was designed in the late 1970's. The cardinal in the middle represents our cardinal mascot. The lamp of knowledge signifies academic pursuits. The lyre denotes music and the arts, which are an integral part of our curriculum. The scales of justice symbolize the fairness with which each student is treated. The quill (feather) and sword signify that the pen is, indeed, mightier than the sword. This thought is indicative of high moral character, which the school endeavors to instill in each student.


School Colors, Mascot, and Fight Song:

Belle Chasse High School's colors are red, white, and black. Our school's mascot is the fighting cardinal. The Belle Chasse High School fight song is the same tune as the Notre Dame Fight song.

Alma Mater

Hail, ole Alma Mater, may thy ideals high in our hearts forever gleam and never die. Praise to thee and honor from each loyal heart, bound in love together we shall never part; bound in love forever we shall never part.
