Education Demographics

Education Demographics

Over 30% of Bay City residents do not have a high school diploma. This presents a tremendous challenge in creating quality jobs because there is not a skilled workforce to recruit from. This low education attainment is reflected in the low household income discussed earlier. This is a key challenge for Bay City to address the educational attainment and skills of the City population. There is work underway, through the partnership with Wharton County Junior College;  however, much more needs to be done to get local residents at least a high school equivalency so they can be prepared for the new jobs being created in Matagorda County.

I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
