Bridge Community Christian School
In the fall of 2017...
The Church Academy (TCA), opened a Lafayette campus at the Bridge in 2017. TCA-Lafayette (soon to be officially renamed Bridge Community Christian School ) is giving our students a Christ-centered, tuition-free, fully accredited, private education, unlike any other in Acadiana.
By leveraging state voucher and tax-incentive programs like Arete Scholarship, parents who qualify can now afford to send their children to a private school committed to high academic standards. We use the Abeka Christian School Curriculum that has proven to excel students educationally while weaving the Good News into every subject.
All Bridge Community Christian School (BCCS) Students must qualify for scholarships under Louisiana’s School of Choice Scholarship Programs. These Scholarship Programs include Louisiana's Tuition Donation Credit Program and the Scholarship Voucher Program. To qualify for BCCS enrollment all students must satisfy the following three Louisiana School of Choice Scholarship prerequisites:
1. Must have a family household income that does not exceed 250% of the federal poverty guidelines, as established by the Federal Office of Management and Budget.
2. Must be a resident of Louisiana
3. Must have attended a public school in Louisiana on October 1 and February 1 of the most recent school year; or be entering Kindergarten for the first time; or have participated in the Louisiana Scholarship Program/Tuition Donation Rebate Program for the previous school year.
School Meals: Nutrition
Our school is committed to serving healthy meals to children, with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat milk; that are moderate in sodium, low in saturated fat, and have zero grams trans fat per serving (nutrition label or manufacturer’s specification); and to meeting the nutrition needs of school children within their calorie requirements. The school meal program aims to improve the diet and health of school children, help mitigate childhood obesity, model healthy eating to support the development of lifelong healthy eating patterns and support healthy choices while accommodating cultural food preferences and special dietary needs.
