The NorthBay Academy is not only providing a service of academic support, but rather one of comprehensive support that benefits students academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. In a short amount of time, NorthBay has created an amazing network for students, families, services, care, and support. The stakeholders are authentically invested and are relentless in doing whatever it takes to help students be successful. It was once again a pleasure working with each of the leaders and educators at NorthBay.”

What the partnership between NorthBay, Baltimore City Public Schools and Johns Hopkins has born out it that this, cross discipline and partner approach really yields incredible results for kids…As a society are we willing to invest in what we know works for kids, I think NorthBay is an example of that”

NorthBay’s Program Evaluation

NorthBay has been serving 10,000 fifth and sixth grade students per year in a 5 day 4 night residential education program for the past 10 years.   Each year for the past seven years we have been formally evaluating the effectiveness of our program in terms of environmental intention to act, academic intention to act and citizenship/character. This process is designed and overseen by a team of external consultants from Yale, Virginia Tech and Clemson Universities through the administration of pre, post and 3 month past experience instruments.

Our evaluation has consistently shown that students leave NorthBay with a statistically significant increase in each of these measures that normally last at least 3 moths post experience.

Below is the most recent evaluation report.
