Admissions Guidance Department

Bay Path is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Each Bay Path Graduate receives a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA and a VOCATIONAL CERTIFICATE. Bay Path admits students and makes available to them its advantages, privileges and courses of study without regard to race, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, home status or disability. Since final placement of students is based on the exploratory program and space availability, we cannot guarantee that the final placement will be the applicant's first choice. Bay Path services students within the Southern Worcester County District; Auburn, Charlton, Dudley, North Brookfield, Oxford, Paxton, Rutland, Southbridge, Spencer, and Webster. Students from these towns are encouraged to apply. All other towns are considered "Out of District".

How to Apply to Bay Path for Admission

  1. Students and their Parents/Guardian complete the front and back page section of the application.
  2. The two inside pages are completed by the counselor/principal of the local school system and forwarded to Bay Path's Guidance Office.
  3. The student is interviewed by a counselor from Bay Path.

Acceptance is based on attendance, grades, discipline record and interview. Applications may be submitted at any time. Application for September admission should be submitted after second quarter grades are issued.

NOTE: OUT-OF-DISTRICT APPLICANTS: Your superintendent must be notified by us of your intent to apply BEFORE APRIL1 for financial planning purposes. Therefore, you should submit your application by March 1.

NOTE: Out of district post graduates MUST apply prior to February 1. Pupils who are acceptable, but for who we do not have enough space, will be placed on a Waiting List, which will be maintained through March 1 of each year.
