Activity Program

Our guiding precepts include valuing a healthy, strong body and calm, resilient mind. In light of this, we require that students who do not play on an athletic team participate in physical activities. All 9th-, 10th- and 11th-graders not competing on a team are required to participate in a designated physical activity class or approved alternative activity during the fall and spring semesters.  Approved alternate activities must be physical activity related and be facilitated by an instructor/coach. Designated activity classes take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays after school in the Fall and Spring and offer a range of activities at the school, Letterman GymPlanet GraniteSan Francisco, and the Presidio YMCA. Class offerings include crossfit, martial arts, rock climbing, ultimate frisbee, group exercise and strength training. Additional activities classes are offered based upon student interests, availability of instructors and seasonal considerations. All students are required to complete 3 credits of physical education (0.5 credits per term) through team sports or activity classes in order to fulfill Bay's graduation requirements.
