A Great Start to the New School Year!
Posted 09/07/2018 03:28PM

Dear School Community,

September is always an exciting time for us and this year was no different. The last few days have been filled with so many moments of joy and curiosity as we opened the new school year at Bay Ridge Prep. For 92 of our students, this is their first year as Tigers and what a warm welcome they received from their new friends and teachers! 

For all of us, September means a fresh start. It’s a chance to try new classes, new lessons, meet new people, discover new passions and continue growing and evolving as individuals and as a community. The thrill of it all was captured in the many First Day of School photos you shared with us that we posted in a video on social media

Thank you to our students for filling our classrooms and hallways once again with energy and smiles. Thank you to our dedicated faculty and staff for creating a wonderful experience at the start of year and all year long. Finally, thanks to each parent and family who has entrusted us with the care of their children. Your support, partnership and collaboration allows Bay Ridge Prep to live up to its mission of truly being a student-centered community.

Enjoy this long weekend. We look forward very much to seeing you again next week.

About Us

Bay Ridge Prep is a co-ed, K-12 independent school in Brooklyn, New York, that is home to 400 students and over 100 faculty spread across two buildings.  With a student-centered environment and fresh approach to education, Bay Ridge Prep provides an enriching academic experience in a socially mature environment.


Bay Ridge Prep is selective in admissions and prospective students go through a formal application process.  What we look for most in an applicant is a student who will benefit from our programs and make a positive impact on our community.


Bay Ridge Prep students get their first taste of hands-on learning in Kindergarten, when they become owners and operators of their own bakery.  By high school, they are deeply engaged in courses like Science, Research & Design - a three-year class that offers the opportunity to conduct original, independent research.


Led by experienced arts educators with advanced degrees in art, music and theater, the arts program recognizes that creative expression is a vital and integral part of a student’s development.


Home to nine championships in the last seven years, Bay Ridge Prep Athletics offers students an opportunity to explore physical challenges and develop leadership and teamwork skills.

Student Life

Student life is more than just classes, clubs and team sports.  Bay Ridge Prep is proactive in making every day life for students engaging, positive and enjoyable. 


Giving to Bay Ridge Prep has a profound impact on the daily lives of our students and helps give the school's administration the flexibility and financial resources to address spontaneous needs in and out of the classroom such as undertaking new programs and facility upgrades.


Bay Ridge Prep Alumni can be found everywhere.  Our newest alums are at some of the best colleges and graduate programs in the country and older alums are professionals in the fields of medicine, law, media, education, finance and more.
