It's time we think in a different way. ADHD is not an epidemic — kids are being told to focus on boring stuff! Let's wake students up. Start by watching this video. We couldn't have said it better ourselves.


The Bay City Academy Board of Directors has been sworn in.


The Bay City mayor and city clerk were on hand Jan. 31 at the Historic Webster House as the following officers were elected:

  • President Craig Johnston
  • Vice President Mike Wooley
  • Secretary Dennis Griffith
  • Treasurer Arlene Bush
  • Trustee Claire Gregory

Bay City Academy also now is officially chartered with Lake Superior State University.

"Parents need a wider choice in their educational offerings," BCA founder Steve Ingersoll told the Bay City Times. "All schools improve when there's expanded choice. That's what we've found in Traverse City. We have 1,200 kids in that school, and Traverse City has a pretty good school district, so we must be doing something right."

Bay City Academy is on the move — literally!

A building that formerly housed the local Salvation Army will be picked up and moved to our location at 400 N. Madison soon to house classrooms when our school opens in September.

BCA founder Steve Ingersoll says moving an existing building to become part of the school is a more environmentally friendly approach.

"(The Salvation Army) donated the building to us if we paid for the excavation costs," Ingersoll told The Bay City Times. "The deal we have is a generous one — they were going to knock down the building anyway.

"There's nothing more green than restoring a building rather than building a new one. Otherwise, it would end up in a landfill."
