Curriculum & Hands-On Experience
Middle School Curriculum
The curriculum is a strong, multi-faceted program that includes top-notch, seminar-based humanities, science, math, and language programs, implemented on a two-year cycle. The extra-curricular offerings carry on Bay Farm’s unique focus on integrating academics with the performing and visual arts.
With a low student/teacher ratio, students benefit from small group work and individualized instruction and are highly encouraged and taught to be self-directed, independent, reflective, and respectful.

Middle School Internship Week
Bay Farm participates in an Internship Week where our middle school students benefit from real-world career explorations. This program includes a 30 hour, one-week internship experience off campus with local businesses and corporations.
Additionally, the middle school works collaboratively to run a small book selling business in order to gain real-life business experience.
Take pride in asking thoughtful questions, and be comfortable with not always knowing the answers. I definitely learned this from Bay Farm, and it's something that stays with me today. I was always more excited when my teacher would say "that's a great question" rather than "that's correct."
