Letter From Our Principal

Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to St. Mary Academy-Bay View, home of the Bengals! Bay View has been a school of educational excellence since 1874 and continues to offer young women the opportunity to excel as well as discover many fascinating things about themselves. Here, creativity abounds, and curiosity is celebrated.  

At Bay View, our students are our focus, and dedicated teachers strive to help each individual reach her full potential. The curriculum is engaging, with a project-based approach. We are a community of learners who seek to move both ourselves and our society forward by investigating critical issues in our current world and contributing to solutions that make life better for every living being on the planet. 

Come and join our wonderful community as we strive to become confident, independent, young women. Come to visit and learn what being a Mercy girl is all about.
