Admission


The Bay Haven Charter Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, religion or gender. It is the intention of the school to reflect the community it serves and be open to any resident in the area who would otherwise attend an elementary or middle school in Bay County. Preference is given to siblings of currently enrolled students and children of Bay Haven Charter Academy employees.

If the number of applications exceeds the number of positions available, enrollment will be determined at the completion of a state-mandated lottery to be held at a date and time to be announced.
