Students will also be assessed on their ability to communicate effectively.  This assessment is set-up by appointment only.
All pre-kindergarten students MUST be potty-trained. There are no exceptions to this rule.

The Bayou Academy Admissions Committee carefully evaluates each applicant on his/her individual strengths and talents. Admission to Bayou Academy is selective and based on previous school performance, behavior reports, results of an entrance assessment, and if needed, an interview with the student and/or family. While individual test scores for candidates grades one and above are important, every part of a candidate’s file plays a critical role in the acceptance process.
Check your e-mail for decisions regarding admission decision from the Admissions Committee. Please check your junk/SPAM mail folders during this time. 
If accepted, move on to Step 6.
If accepted, you'll receive an e-mail with instructions to complete an online enrollment packet.  If a secondary packet is needed for a split family, be sure to communicate that with the Admissions Director.

Enrollment is not complete until this packet (and secondary packet, if needed) have been submitted.  If you did not receive an e-mail with submission confirmation, please make sure you hit the "Submit" button on the "Enrollment Packet Review" section.
