Bay Cove Academy - Creating Opportunities


Bay Cove Academy is a small, therapeutic day school located in Brookline, Massachusetts serving adolescents, ages 12-21, from the Greater Boston area.  Approved by the Massachusetts Department of Education and nationally recognized by the US Department of Labor for its Career Development Program, the school provides a highly structured, learning environment for teens whose educational and social needs exceed those which traditional public and private schools can accommodate.


Bay Cove Academy provides education, therapy,  career counseling and transition services for approximately 35  male and female adolescents aged 12 - 21 with a history of emotional and learning difficulties. Our students thrive in our small, intensive  strength-based learning environment that has been designed to help students develop new pathways to success in all areas of their lives.

Referral Process

Students are referred through their local school district or by parents, legal guardians or other agencies in collaboration with the local school district.   


The curriculum provides a comprehensive middle and high school course of study that meets all requirements for a high school diploma. All curriculum is aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.  Our teaching staff are all highly qualified with licensure in their individual subject area as well as in special education.

"Bay Cove Academy focuses on the whole child by equally emphasizing academics, social and emotional well being, along with employment opportunities. Through the seamless integration of the academic, clinical and employment disciplines, students are able to develop their individual potential, and are held to high standards and expectations.  All behavioral expectations are firmly established and are consistently addressed by all staff providing clear and natural consequences for students.  Academic courses offered range from life skills to college preparatory curriculum.”
