Community Engagement

How will you improve the world in and beyond Bay? Rather than enforce required service, Bay staffulty infuse their courses with authentic opportunities to ask, research, and address real-world problems. By developing the habits of mind and heart to address challenges in our complex, dynamic world, Bay students serve, lead, and contribute to the world beyond Bay. Below are just three highlights of Bay's program and opportunities for service and leadership.

Research in the Community All tenth grade students take this course, which includes field research and service, and is focused on recognizing and understanding the needs and issues of our region. Students present their findings to the Bay community at a special evening event.
Senior Signature Projects All twelfth grade students participate in Senior Signature Projects, a two-term course of study in which students pursue an individual project that not only helps them grow as individuals, but also serves community needs beyond Bay.

Clubs and Service Beyond Bay's formal academic program, many students identify and respond to local needs through participation in clubs, all of which are student-created and led with the support of faculty advisors. In addition, the Parent Guardian Association offers Community Service Day, which brings together students, parents, and trustees in service projects with regional nonprofit organizations.
