I love my school! Although, the school is very small and has a limited amount of resources, the teachers and staff ensure that all students recieve the education that they deserve. The school is very welcoming and the community is very friendly.

Bedford Academy has a wonderful community of faculty that genuinely cares for the students. The teachers bond with the students, and are very involved in not just their academic lives, but their personal lives as well. Since the school is so small, it gives teachers time to memorize each students' name, face, and personalities. The principal is very involved in the students, and even teaches some of the classes to get to know the freshman better. It's a wonderful school, and the values they teach both girls and boys will hold onto each student for a lifetime.
My experience at Bedford Academy has been amazing. I will be graduating with an Advanced Regents Diploma. I was able to travel abroad to China, Japan, Italy, and Greece. I have been able to obtain 18 college credits at Long Island University thru the ECS program. It is a lot of work but worth it!
