Bay View High School is a college-bound school offering rigorous STEAM education for students grades 9-12. As part of the Believe in Bay initiative, the school has altered its preexisting STEM program to create a more dynamic STEAM pathway towards graduation. This new focus on STEAM education includes coursework in the areas of science, technology, engineering, math, and now the visual, musical and performing arts. The STEAM programming allows for students to be engaged in hands-on design thinking learning experiences through cross curricular projects. The school offers students the opportunity to earn college credits through the advanced placement and Project Lead the Way courses.

Students in the ninth and tenth grade are enrolled into AP College Springboard for Math and English Language Arts. This curriculum is designed to better prepare students for college-level Advanced Placement course work in the later high school years. All ninth grades students are programmed into a STEAM academy. This academy structure offers the students the ability to experience all aspects of the STEAM programming along with building a strong community through a restorative practice course. The academy structure allows for core content area teachers and City Year Corp. members the opportunity to better support students for their transition into high school.

Bay View also offers students the opportunity within the trades through the Building, Architecture, and Technology Academy. Bay View offers a variety of afterschool programs and maintains strong partnerships with Discovery World, UWM, Alverno, and a variety of Art institutions.
