“Something is happening here. The school is fostering in its students an attitude of openness toward new things, a reverence for life, a compassion for fellow human beings, a desire to serve, a willingness to stand up and be counted.”

Student PaintingThere is a school in Blue Hill, Maine, which has been called magical; a place where childhood is held sacred and everything is done to ensure its fullest unfolding. Here, dedicated teachers and parents share a vision of education that guides human beings toward fulfillment and freedom. In a world of accelerating change and increasing conformity, the unhurried approach of the Bay School educates children to meet life with self-confidence and creativity.

Children Playing at School
Our mission is to provide an education that engages and nurtures the whole child, inspiring a balanced growth of heart, mind, body and spirit. We are committed to developing in our students inner confidence, responsibility, self-motivation, a love of learning, imagination, creativity, and intellectual clarity. The educational ideals and values of the school, rooted in the Waldorf tradition, create a community of children, alumni, parents, faculty, friends and neighbors imbued with reverence for others and the natural world.

The Bay School is located on a beautiful 36-acre campus, which encompasses woods, trails, athletic fields, meadows, a chicken coop, gardens, and a playground. One of the most treasured memories of Bay School graduates is the value placed on outdoor time.

The Bay School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America. The Bay School welcomes families of any race or religion.
