|The mission of Bay-Arenac Community High School is to provide a
positive community for up to 150 students each semester in learning the
skills necessary for attaining personally meaningful lives, which are
economically productive and socially responsible.
Bay-Arenac Community High School, located in Essexville, Michigan, began
operation in 1985 as an Alternative High School. Chartered in 1995 as one of
Michigan’s first public school academies, this alternative secondary school now
serves up to 150 students each semester
All students and staff experience and use the conflict resolution and consensus
building models developed as the foundation for our school. These programs
assist in keeping a zero tolerance for violence policy and create an extremely safe
place to learn. Over 670 students have graduated from Community High School
during its history.
Among our valuable accomplishments, the Bay Area Community Foundation
recently established a two-year college scholarship grant specifically for a selected
Community High School graduate.
