Character Education trains students to "see" the future consequences of current actions so they learn to choose well throughout their lives. Bay City Academy's Character Education programs are woven into every part of the school day. Character traits are applied to daily life through service learning projects. These projects connect our curriculum with the inherent caring and concern young people have for their world. Classmates choose projects that benefit others. They plan, coordinate and implement ideas to completion. Character Education report cards are sent to parents four times per year so that teachers, parents and students can celebrate accomplishments and plan for improvement.

Bay City Academy emphasizes six Character Education traits:
  • Work Ethic: Working hard and sustaining effort leading to feeling good about a job well done.
  • Getting Along: Contributing to and gaining from positive relationships.
  • Kindness: Thinking and acting in ways that show you care.
  • Respect: Acting in a way that shows that I am valuable, you are valuable and we as a group are valuable.
  • Responsibility: Choosing to act in a way that takes care of oneself and contributes to the common good.
  • Optimism: Expecting good things today and in the future.
