Upper School

Bay Ridge Prep students believe in their power to succeed. The ingredients to that success: a progressive academic environment that emphasizes experiential learning, intimate class sizes and an outstanding faculty. Our graduates are critical thinkers, responsible citizens and caring people with successful and meaningful personal and professional lives. 

The well-rounded college preparatory program of the Upper School allows students to realize the academic rigor that will be experienced in an undergraduate program while still learning in a supportive environment that promotes creativity and celebrates each individual.


Small classes create dynamic interactions between students and dedicated and experienced faculty. Building upon the confidence and self-awareness that Middle School students develop, Upper School students play a role in designing their own course schedule which includes choices such as a multi-year science course in research and design plus AP, honors and college-level classes in a variety of subject areas.


By the end of upper school, a Bay Ridge Prep student graduates as a positive and articulate young person who holds a firm command of the knowledge and skills valued by colleges, graduate schools, employers and society.
