The Bay School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory high school that opened its doors in the Presidio of San Francisco in 2004. For the 2016-2017 school year, over 350 students – from over 90 middle schools – are enrolled at Bay in grades 9 through 12. Click here for Bay's official 2015-2016 school profile which includes college acceptances to date, and an overview of our campus and facilities, student body breakdown, academic highlights, ethics and mindfulness.

The founders envisioned a school focused on the future – not only the immediate future of college and adulthood, but also an increasingly interconnected world where change and innovation are constant. To prepare students for their roles as capable, courageous and ethical leaders, Bay’s nationally-recruited faculty has developed an educational program that balances challenging academics with a mindful approach to learning and life.
