Way Beyond The Basics Upper School

Children are seen, known and become their own best advocate at Bay Ridge Prep.

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.
