Jessica Rosado, M.Ed., Principal

As the principal of Bayou Community Academy, it is my goal to provide our scholars with a school experience that is reflective of the cognitive, social and emotional needs of children and adolescents, while embracing the mission, vision, and values of BCA. Through collaborative partnerships, we can lead our scholars to understanding the value of education and to recognize the opportunities associated with academic success, effort, and determination. I look forward to building a sense of community within our school and working in collaboration with all stakeholders. BCA all the way!
