The Bayou Academy Addition and Renovation project is the first phase in the master planning and expansion of this ever-growing school in the Mississippi delta. With the addition of new street facades and an entry pavilion, the existing buildings are unified with a new identity. The new entrance courtyard provides a clear point of entry for visitors while separate outdoor patios expand the students learning experience beyond the classroom. On the interior, new administrative offices for both the upper and lower schools along with a conference room and other collaborative work spaces provide greater efficiency for the school’s daily operations and offer a welcoming atmosphere for the parents of current and prospective students. A new state-of-the-art science lab, media center, and library provide welcome updates to the school’s support spaces and better serve current pedagogical models.
