Bay Area Technology School is tuition-free, a college preparatory school and aims to improve student performance in reading, writing, and math, reduce dropout rates, achieve high student attendance rates, and increase the number of students who pursue careers in STEM areas. BayTech serves grades 6th through 12th. All students follow a curriculum that fulfills the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) A-G course requirements. BayTech’s graduation requirements exceed the A through G course requirements in some aspects.

BayTech bases its educational program on the understanding that our nation's economic future will require a highly trained workforce in STEM. The comprehensive science education provided by BayTech helps students acquire a whole set of necessary intellectual habits and attitudes that might well be called “scientific habits of thinking,” an important component of critical thinking.
