Bay City Academy creates a loving environment where kids feel safe so they can learn at a higher level.


Common sense dictates that a safe, happy child is more productive than a student who is distressed. For this reason, the Bay City Academy model is to first create an environment that is nurturing and supportive, and based on relationships rather than coercion. Bay City Academy is a school for all types of students. Our program is designed to offer a safe, nurturing place where students learn to love learning. By combining proven knowledge of human development, best practices in education and strong character education, we will help each child to discover his or her inherent gifts.
