The Bay School recognizes the importance that questions of spirit and practices of faith have played and continue to play in our world. Although not a “religious” school, at The Bay School we seek to understand and to value diverse spiritual and religious traditions. We believe that having an understanding of religion as well as its interaction with science, art, and politics – for example – are an important part of an educated person’s resources. The study of religion and philosophy is integrated into the required Humanities curriculum, and we offer academic electives in all of the major faith traditions.
Beyond the academic courses, we also honor the roles spirituality and faith play in an individual’s life. We encourage all members of The Bay School community to participate in their religious and spiritual traditions and make every effort for them to do this comfortably. We aid in our community’s awareness of these traditions through Morning Meeting
, where faith adherents from both within and outside of the Bay community share their experiences.
