New Bedford Academy

Our Mission Statement


New Bedford Academy is a fully accredited public school providing quality education through ability based instruction in a safe and caring environment.


The vision of New Bedford Academy is to be the most prestigious K-12 school in Monroe and Lenawee counties.

New Bedford Academy is committed to the concept of diversity. In this ever-changing world, students need to learn and experience cultures that are different from their own. They need to read, think, express themselves and be constructive members of society.

Through the utilization of educational strategies such as team-teaching, cooperative learning, multiage grouping, and a focus on the application of technology to further enhance individualized learning, the students will be provided with a discovery-rich environment.

Students are encouraged to make choices and learn how to evaluate their work and their behavior.
