Bay Ridge Prep's history is a source of great pride for our entire academic community and helps shape our mission and culture. Our school was started by a group of committed faculty, parents, and students who shared a child-centered educational vision.
Bay Ridge Prep is dedicated to enriching intellectual curiosity, creativity, and emotional intelligence through a student-centered community that values the unique talents and learning styles of each person. We provide students with tools of inquiry that will promote their success in life. In addition to learning important facts and concepts, students use research methods to identify and solve problems, to analyze and evaluate information, and to synthesize and apply the results to new situations. In this context, teachers become facilitators of learning. We seek to help students attain a deeper understanding of concepts and issues that are pervasive and enduring.
