Cynthia Lorincz has been at Bay View Academy since 1993. Prior to becoming Principal, Cindy taught biology, chemistry and developmental psychology in the science department in the Upper School and served as chair of the science department. In 1999, she was named as the first associate principal of the Middle School and worked closely with Upper School Principal, Ms. Colleen Gribbin, to move the Academy from the junior high to Middle School model. She served as principal of the Middle School and acting principal of the Lower School during the 2008-2009 school year and was then named principal of both the Lower and Middle Schools in June of 2009.
Prior to coming to Bay View, Cindy taught at Mercymount Country Day School in Cumberland, RI and GED classes in mathematics for Bristol Community College. She began her career in education as a science teacher in the Boston Public Schools.
Cindy earned her bachelor’s degree from Emmanuel College, did graduate work in guidance and counseling at Boston College and earned her master’s degree in administration at Providence College. She has presented at several conferences, including “Robotics in the Middle School” at the National Coalition of Girls Schools annual conference and “Low-Cost, One-to-One Computing” at the Christa McAuliffe Technology conference with two of her Bay View colleagues.
Cindy has focused on the enhancement and expansion of technology in the learning environment. The Middle School has adopted one-to-one computing for all students. In the Lower School, the early childhood program features an iPad learning center and the intermediate grades use a mobile netbook lab which enables each student to have her own in-school netbook. The intermediate grades in the Lower School have adopted a team teaching model which allows the teachers to specialize in curriculum areas.
Cindy served as president of the League of Women Voters of the Attleboros and served on the board of the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts. She has also served on the Planning Board of the City of Attleboro for ten years, the majority of those as the vice chair of the board.
Cindy lives with her husband Paul and has three children: Gregory, Ann, who is a 1999 Bay View graduate and Joseph.
