Bayside Parents Association


The mission of the Bayside Parents Association is to support, encourage and contribute to daily life at Bayside Academy. The Association’s aim is to work alongside the administration, faculty and students, so that together we can experience the Spirit of Bayside to its fullest extent. It is our ambition to volunteer, award grants, and cooperate with programs and projects that directly impact Bayside Academy and contribute to its ongoing growth, development and success.

Bayside Advisory Committee


The Bayside Advisory Committee (BAC) fosters positive communication among school administration, faculty and parents. This is accomplished through monthly meetings with grade level representatives and division heads, during which there is a sharing of information and ideas.  This flow of information is helpful to everyone and promotes a positive environment for the students to learn.

Parents are encouraged to contact their representatives with questions or concerns that are not specific to their child, and that they may not otherwise know how to have addressed. The grade representatives meet the first Thursday of the month prior to the Bayside Parents Association meetings.

"My involvement with Parents Association has been such a great and positive learning experience. I have gotten to know so many parents, teachers and administrators school-wide, and have had the opportunity to learn about all aspects of our school. Being involved has given me a new appreciation for all of the amazing opportunities that Bayside has to offer our children."

- Alicia Cunningham, BPA Past President
