Belleville Mennonite high school (grades 9 - 12) students can choose among a wide array of college prep courses and enrichment opportunities such as the school’s dual-enrollment partnership with Juniata College.  Over 85% of BMS students go on to study in college.  The theme of our high school is preparing young people to be successful, independent Christians who serve God and their fellow man within their special area of calling. 

Spiritual Enrichment. High school students take part in weekly chapels led by local pastors and community leaders who share inspiring, Christ centered messages.  Students also  participate in Bible classes, a worship chapel, and care groups.  At BMS, Christ is the center of everything we do.

Extracurricular Activities. High School students have opportunities to participate on athletic teams, in the Concert Choir, and be a part of the annual school drama performance.

Leadership.  Student leaders at BMS may serve on student senate and participate in National Honor Society.  They also may lead worship and care groups.  Care group  leaders provide leadership to underclassman during the once-weekly care group sessions where students share prayer requests and offer spiritual encouragement and prayer for each other.

High school teachers, Mrs. Evelyn Suydam (science), Mrs. Ann Quinn (English), Mrs. Tricia Morgan (math), Mr. Jonathan Farley (history), Miss Brittany Yoder (physical education and guidance), Mr. Bob Zook (computer), Mrs. Lena Hartzler (Spanish), Mr. Charlie Stump (Bible), Mrs. Hilary Hearn (music and concert choir) and Mrs. Tambra Peachey (Art) combine for an outstanding high school educational experience for students.  Each teacher is specialized in their subject and provide a setting where students thrive and learn to work hard and succeed.


More about our partnership with Juniata College...

BMS continues to provide an excellent opportunity for high school students to partner with Juniata College to provide dual enrollment/college credit courses to them for the incredibly low cost of $200.00 per credit (plus the cost of books)! These courses are taught at Juniata College and students need to provide their own transportation.  BMS students who qualify for this program will be permitted to leave school at 1:15 pm and travel to JC to take a 2:00 pm or 2:30 pm course.  Students may go to JC website for a complete listing of available courses.  Please register with Miss Yoder for these classes.
