On Wednesday, September 25th we had the pleasure of opening our Campuses to the community for an Open House. We are so thankful to have such wonderful students, parents, and staff to make our events so successful. To start out the night, we had a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the improved Farragut Campus. There were classroom tours, bounce houses, hotdogs, and quality time with one another to welcome each individual to our "home." We want to thank everyone who could make it out and for those who could not, here is a brief clip of our ceremony.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Farrgut Campus on Wednesday, September 25th. Rachel Schoen, one of our second grade students accompanied by her mother, Janet Schoen.

photoSecondary students gathered at the Friendship Shell downtown to celebrate Constitution Day. As students arrived, they each signed a "school constitution" that was drafted and written by the students in their Social Studies and History classes. Students signed the document using an authentic quill pen. The National Anthem was then sung in five part harmony by the BCA Chamber Choir followed by Taps performed by two student trumpeters. During Taps, the rest of the student body released balloons. Attached to each balloon was a note; one side it read "If found, please contact our school and let us know how far this balloon flew," and on the other was a personal note from each student stating, "To me, the Constitution means..." Thank you to all of the parents and friends who joined us for this wonderful event. It was an amazing activity for our students and great for the community.

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.
