Thank you BCA families, friends and neighbors for attending our open house this past week.  What an amazing school building filled with Bay City history and memories.  We were excited to meet some of it's former teachers and students as they shared stories of their wonderful experiences attending the school over 30 years ago.  Check out the MLive article!

This is an exciting time for you and your child.  Gathering school uniforms and supplies creates great anticipation for the upcoming school year experience!  Click the links below for BCA's school supply lists and uniform guidelines.

With the best fireworks display in Michigan and the Tall Ships Festival, Bay City is an exciting place to be in the summer!  The fun continues this weekend at Veteran's Park.
Bay City Academy is proud to be part of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.  Relay For Life events honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much.  The funds 
raised truly make a difference in the fight against cancer.
BCA's relay team will camp out overnight and participants will take turns walking around the path at Vet's Park.  Our event is 24 hours in length and, because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
Come be part of the event on Saturday by stopping by our tent, as well as others; there will be games, food and fun!  Families are also invited to be participants on the track.  You can sign up for a walking time by emailing Susan Thill at   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

We hope to see you there!

IMG 2145Congratulations go out to Mrs. Messbarger and Mrs. Williams and members of our band and choir for receiving straight 1’s (superior rating) at the Michigan Charter School Solo & Ensemble Festival on Saturday April 20th at the Michigan School for the Arts in Pontiac.  All of BCA’s soloists scored with all of 1’s as well!

Taking a first year music program to this level of performance is no easy task.  BCA music students worked very hard this year, especially because most students just learned their instruments for the first time.  Their efforts and collaboration to perform as a group have been amazing!  We are very proud of their recent accomplishments and look forward to an amazing Spring Concert.

Thank you students, parents and teachers for your dedication and support!

Middle schooler, Jason Eurich and kindergartener, Faith Nycamp were recognized this past Saturday for their citizenship and great IMG 3538character at Bay City Academy. Teachers and students submitted nominations last month for over 80 students.

With special thanks to the Just for Kids Foundation, Jason and Faith were picked up at the Madison Arts Campus by motor coach then escorted to the owner’s suite at Dow Field for a pre-game dinner. The Saginaw Sting took the field for the 1st quarter of the football game. Between the 1st and 2nd quarters, Jason and Faith were brought onto the field and presented with brand new bicycles and an autographed football.

Jason and Faith think of others before thinking of themselves, brighten any classroom with their smiles, and always demonstrate good character. We are very proud of them and the positive impact they have on our school.

Bay City Academy is growing and expanding our academic programs!  The excitement for creating a quality school continues to be our focus; doing what is best for our students and serving our families.


You may have read the article by the Bay City Times concerning Dr. Ingersoll's efforts to restore the neighborhoods around our school campuses.  In the last three years, Dr. Ingersoll has been able to put two abandoned historical buildings back into use for BCA’s programs, with a third opening this fall at the Farragut School.  Bay City Academy’s Madison Arts campus was only mentioned in the recent article because our school leases the facility.  The matter surrounding other construction projects does not impact the operations or growth of Bay City Academy.


In fact, we are growing!  The addition of 9th and 10th grades this fall was approved by our board of directors.  BCA’s high school program will follow a blended learning model including online classes and project-based learning.  We'll share more information about BCA’s high school program soon.  BCA's K-5 program continues to grow and thrive and will expand to the Farragut School this fall, opening the Madison Arts and Old Y Campuses to our Middle and High School programs.


We are very thankful to all of our BCA families for their continued support and trust as we continue to grow.  We love being a part of your kids' growth and academic success!

The Bay City Academy school board of directors approved our plans to add two grades to our program, which will allow BCA to serve students from Kindergarten to 10th grade.

BCA’s high school program will follow a blended learning model including online classes, a wide variety of elective courses, and project-based learning.

More information about BCA’s high school program will be presented soon!
