High School Academic Support Services
Bellmont High School is proud to be recognized as an A school by the Indiana Department of Education. Some wonderful academic opportunities we provide our students are:
Bellmont Early College: BHS is one of only three fully-endorsed early colleges in the State. That means that BHS students are able to earn a large number of college credits while in high school; however, BHS tries to make sure that our students’ credits are intentionally linked to what they want to do and are highly transferable. Too, through the program, students go on two college visits each year and receive supports in applying to and financing college. In fact, many of our BEC grads earn anywhere from 20-42 college credits, have at least one year of college completed by graduation, and save on average $20,000 in tuition expenses. Interested?

Bellmont Career Academy: BHS is also developing a similar preparatory program for our students heading into the trades or other vocational programs. Through BHS, students have the opportunity to gain experience in automotive technology, building trades, welding, precision machining and manufacturing, pre-engineering, fire and rescue, criminal justice, health careers, agriculture, radio/TV, business, child care, education, and culinary arts. As part of BCA, our goal is that students will be able to visit a variety of trade schools and apprenticeship programs, businesses that represent high wage/high need careers, and have opportunities to participate eventually in competitive internships with local businesses.

Special Education: BHS also has a strong special education program designed to push students to achieve rigorous individual goals with appropriate supports as well as to develop strong self-advocacy, work-based, independent living, and self-regulation skills, as appropriate for the individual.

Character: We are BRAVES. That’s the message we repeat often. We take seriously helping our students grow and develop as contributing citizens of their communities.
