Bayside Academy Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Bayside Academy Celebrates 50th Anniversary 


Daphne, Ala., September 9, 2020 – Bayside Academy opened the doors to its very first students on September 8, 1970, with classes from kindergarten through 8th grade. David M. Smith was headmaster, and John A. Robertson was chairman of the Board of Directors. On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Bayside Academy celebrated its 50th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, a special 50th anniversary flag was added to the school’s flagpole. The flag represents multiple things – gratitude to Bayside’s founders, pride in Bayside’s traditions, and a pledge to current and future students to provide them the best possible education in an environment that fosters Bayside’s core values:  excellence, responsibility, integrity, leadership, community, and respect. Bayside’s youngest and oldest students, Connor Dimoff ’35 and Luke Warner ’21, raised the flag to commemorate this day.

Bayside Academy is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory day school for students in grades PK3–12.
