Learning is real world, challenging, active and collaborative
Serving students from across Springfield, Baystate Academy Charter Public School is a rigorous college-preparatory school with a focus on healthcare careers. We currently offer grades six through nine and will be adding a new grade each year. Our first class of seniors will graduate in 2019.
In addition to our health-sciences focus, Baystate Academy partners with EL Education, a proven national model that unlocks students’ potential with project-based learning, and supports them to achieve more than they thought was possible.
College and career success is increasingly dependent on skills that go beyond content knowledge. Through hands-on experience, students design expeditions, lead whole-school meetings, and facilitate student/parent conferences. Our approach strengthens essential skills like leadership, effective communication and collaboration, time management, and accountability.
