At Bay Path, classroom learning and real life experience combine for a meaningful education. From our founding more than 100 years ago, we have emphasized a career-focused curriculum that prepares people to become professionals and leaders in their field.
Our innovative programs for high school, transfer and International young women, our One-Day-A-Week College offering degrees for women at three convenient locations, The American Women's College, the first all-women, all-online accredited degree program, and our graduate programs for men and women have made us a pioneer among peers – just like the students we send out into the world.
Our goal is to give students confidence in the fundamentals of their chosen field, the curiosity to question the ordinary, the leadership to show initiative, and the desire to make a difference.
