Our Story

Bayou Academy began as the "little schoolhouse on the Bayou" in 1964.  Over the years, the building has changed location as the students outnumbered the space available.  
 
Eventually, the building came to rest in its current location on Crosby Road in Cleveland.  Home to over 500 students and 65+ faculty and staff members, Bayou Academy has grown in ways never imagined.  With growth can also come growing pains - but we feel like those are good pains to have!  
 
Bayou Academy is proud of our Cleveland community and our surrounding Delta towns.  As we come together, we can create new learning experiences for our students that teach them in exciting, innovative ways.  With freedom to bring God into our school, we begin every day with a devotional, scripture, or chapel.  We do not take for granted that we are afforded this right.
