The building that is now known as Bay City Central opened March 27, 1922. The original architectural plans called for two floors, but a third was added to provide room for Bay City Junior College (which now exists as Delta College, and is now located in University Center, Michigan). The "New Gymnasium" was constructed in 1957, and the cafeteria/commons received major renovations in 1995. The school's bell tower (which contains two classrooms), as well as a copper-domed observatory on the roof was closed in 1983 due to fire code restrictions and remains unopened to this day.
Mock trial team
Bay City Central has an active mock trial team that allows high school students to argue court cases and compete against other schools in courtrooms around Michigan. The competition is hosted by the Michigan Center for Civic Education.
The high school band program hosts several bands like the Jazz Lab, and Central Air Jazz Band, Symphony, and Wind Symphony, and formerly the Bay Youth Symphony Orchestra.
BCC is the location of the studios and transmitter for WCHW-FM, 91.3, a low power non-commercial FM station run by the students of the Bay City School District.
Bay City Central's choir line-up includes mixed choir, concert choir and award-winning varsity choir, Resounding Harmony. It also has small a capella ensembles, The Girls, The Guys and 6 a.m.
