2020-2021 Reopening Plan for BCA


Dear BCA Families-

I hope everyone is safe and well. Here is our plan moving forward into the 2020-2021 school year. I will be calling each family over the next few days to discuss which opportunity, Face-to-Face Learning or Bay City Virtually Academy is best for your family. I look forward to these conversations and answering your questions.

First Day of School


Dear Bay City Academy Families,

After much deliberation we have decided in the best interest of our students to start school on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020.  Bay City Virtual Academy (BCVA) will begin on Tuesday September 8, 2020.  This September 1st start date will allow for better coordination with other area schools and the Bay Arenac Intermediate School District, which provides various special support services for our kids. If you have questions please call or text Mrs. Long at 989-293-6091.


Thank you,

Mrs. Long
