Bishop McManus Academy was the dream of our namesake and founder, Bishop Owen McManus.
Begun in 1975, the school has been a driving force in Christian education in the Greater New Orleans area.
We have been proud to offer the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) curriculum continuously since the school's inception.
Bishop McManus is an ACE Model School, an elite designation which highlights the level of acedemia, ongoing staff training and other rigorous standards which meet or exceed current national educational standards.
Bishop McManus Academy is the third incarnation of the school.
Since 1970, Accelerated Christian Education has published individualized curriculum and provided training in its implementation for grades K-12.
Students are tested diagnostically upon entering schools or home schools using the program.
Students are then placed in the curriculum in each subject at their own performance levels determined by the results of the diagnostic tests.
The unique format of the curriculum allows students to advance from unit to unit as they demonstrate mastery.
Students move independently through the curriculum under the supervision of instructors who provide tutoring at the optimum moment of learning.
Accelerated Christian Education is more than quality academics.
The curriculum is built on a theistic philosophic foundation.
Students learn to see life from God's point of view.
Their personal relationship with God and their personal responsibilities to family, church, and community are of primary concern.
