Belle Vernon Area High School


Message from the Principals:

We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Belle Vernon Area High School, home of the Leopards. Belle Vernon Area High School has a longstanding tradition of excellence in academics, the arts, and athletics. Our goal is to develop educated and responsible citizens ready to adapt to and make significant contributions to the needs of our 21 century society.

Our wish is to see that everyone has a very successful school year. This can only happen if we all work together. Our focus is simple: Student Learning! We will address this focus by examining the following questions:


1. What is it that we want the students to learn?

2. How do we know if they learned it?

3. What do we do if they did not learn it? How do we push those that did learn it even further?

4. How do we make learning fun, relevant, and challenging

All of us: staff, families, and students must do our part in order to develop a strong partnership and carry on the torch of success.  As a school, we will model the focus of cooperation, teamwork, dedication, and work ethic by treating you and your family with respect.  We will also be responsible in providing you with a challenging curriculum and knowing the needs of you the student.  In return, we will expect results shown through your attitude, work ethic, academic performance, respect, and behavior in the classroom and in the community.

The Administration, faculty and staff are always willing to assist you with any concern or issue.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to seek assistance.
