Bay City Academy continues to grow!  We want to thank all of our families for your support and trust as we continue to expand into our third campus.  Just two blocks east of the Madison Arts campus, the Farragut School will be opening this Fall.  Construction will begin in the next few weeks and is scheduled to be complete before school is out this year.  The Farragut Campus features a gymnasium, huge playground space, large classrooms, and beautifully restored glass block construction.

Middle School classes (grades 6-8) will be housed at the Old Y and Madison Arts Campuses.  This summer, efforts will continue at the Old Y Campus to resurface the gym floor, activate the pool, air condition classrooms, and upgrade project spaces on the first floor.  Our kindergarten and elementary program will be moving into both the Farragut School and Madison Arts Campuses next school year.

Construction updates will be posted on our website throughout the summer.

The educational program BCA offers remains the same with an emphasis on Character Education, project-based learning, and the integration of science and the arts in our everyday curriculum.

We owe it all to you! Thank you BCA parents for a successful second year of operation.  We look forward to sharing this success with our future families, too!

At Bay City Academy, we belive that quality education includes teaching good character.  What better way to devlop well-balanced students than to incoprorate physical fitness and athletics into our program?  Check out the story on MLive!Bay City Academy adding athletics MLive

With the partnership of Citizen's Bank, BCA students are able to open an account free of charge (with a parent/guardian permission). There is no obligation to deposit money, in fact, Citizens Bank donates $0.25 as a beginning balance for all new accounts.  Please see the office for applications.

“Bank Days” will take place twice a month when students can make their deposits and balance their ledgers.  “Bank Days” are as follows:

  • January 11
  • January 25

The Kindergarten classes would like to express their sincere appreciation for your generous support of their class business this year! The Snack Shack is operated by students and parents and offers healthy snacks and bottles of water for 50 cents each throughout the school year. Students learned how to inventory and stock their store, count change, and most importantly provide good customer service with eye contact, a friendly smile, and a hearty handshake. Visitors to the "Snack Shack" helped raise over $2,000 this year, which provided the Kindergartners many enrichment opportunities including field trips Murphy's Farm and Impression 5 Science Center. The class thanks you so much for a great year and looks forward to opening again this fall with more healthy snacks!

Mrs. Spindler wrote a grant that awarded Bay City Academy over 3,500 books. The mix of early readers, chapter books, and board books came in as class sets and at no cost, but with one catch... they had to be picked up in Minneapolis, Minnesota! Mrs. Berry’s parents happen to live in Minneapolis and volunteered to take time off, pick up our U-Haul trailer and drive them all the way here. Please give a huge thank you to Mrs. Berry and her family for loading them up and delivering them to our school and to Mrs. Spindler for writing and organizing the grant. The books arrived on Friday, April 20th and the BCA staff literally jumped in to help upload.
