The Upper School (7-12)

Bayside Academy offers students in grades 7-12 an extraordinary academic experience in an idyllic setting while supported by nurturing faculty. The challenging curriculum encourages students to take intellectual risks while exploring interests. Bayside Academy provides students with a full slate of athletic, artistic, and service opportunities. In and out of the classroom, students develop the integrity, character, and personal responsibility indicative of the Bayside Pride instilled throughout campus exploring the rich and vibrant academic offerings. Through an array of extracurricular experiences, students discover passions and have the opportunity to pursue them.

The Upper School team prioritizes developing relationships with every student. Through our focus on personalizing each students' experience at Bayside, we guide students along the journey of self discovery. With an appreciation for the individual and the warmth of caring adults, the Bayside team strives to help our students understand and develop their own values and habits of minds so that our bright and motivated students acquire skills and dispositions that will prepare them for lives of leadership.

We are a community of high expectations. The faculty is committed to helping students learn to think, read, and write critically as they develop an appreciation for learning. Students are encouraged to innovate, problem solve, and apply knowledge as they continuously redefine personal success in the pursuit of goals.
