• At Bellefonte Area School District we believe that successes and challenges are used as a catalyst for growth, change, and improvement.  We believe this is only possible through schools that are learner centered, research and data informed, and future focused.  We believe in advocating for and nurturing a climate conducive to student learning and staff professional growth by building leadership capacity throughout the district.  With this in mind, our District goals focus on honing and developing those systems that enable us to better serve our students and our community.  

    Vision:  Working collaboratively, we inspire a passion for learning, a commitment to excellence, and a respect for individuals and diversity as we prepare all students to be successful in an ever-changing global society.

    Mission:  Inspiring and Preparing Today’s Learners to Embrace Tomorrow’s Challenges
