SKATE + MUSIC + FASHION
Calling all high school creators (artists, coders, entrepreneurs, photographers, designers, storytellers and misfits). There’s a new school on the block. Introducing Bay High.
BAY HIGH IS A HIGH SCHOOL FOCUS PROGRAM THAT CREATES UPWARD MOBILITY AND OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG CREATORS. IT’S CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE BAY (A PROGRAM OF NONPROFIT RABBLE MILL), LINCOLN PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND NEBRASKA’S BUSINESS AND CHARITABLE COMMUNITY.
Currently there are extremely creative, talented, and passionate kids needing an alternative way to learn, grow and succeed. They need a seat at the table.
Bay High will prepare and equip students to be innovators in the progressive world of entrepreneurship, emerging technology and content creation — rooted in the creative disciplines of skateboarding, music, fashion and digital art.
We believe this next generation of students has the power to be the trailblazers for the future of digital new media and the next leaders in our local communities.
HELP FUND THE CREATORS OF TOMORROW.
