Admission

This is the official and only site for all student applications to Bay Haven (BH) and North Bay Haven (NBH) Charter and Career Academies. We accept students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, religion, or gender. It is our intention to reflect the community we serve and be open to any resident in Bay County seeking to attend an elementary, middle, or high school.
If the number of applications exceeds the number of positions available, enrollment will be determined at the completion of a state-mandated lottery to be held at a date and time to be announced, normally in February or March.

Applications are not complete if you do not receive a confirmation email. Applications are date and time stamped as they are received. If you are unable to complete an application on-line, please come to our office to complete an application on our computer or call:

Bay Haven Elementary/Middle Schools: (850) 248-3500
North Bay Haven Elementary: (850) 248-0205
North Bay Haven Middle/High Schools: (850) 248-0801

Current BH and NBH 8th graders must complete an application to attend 9th grade at NBH and are given priority over students transferring from non-Haven schools.
