Belleville Mennonite School seeks to partner with the families and churches of our students to support the school's mission.  BMS was founded by area church ministers and leaders who sought to provide an environment where the children of their homes and congregations were not only educated, but enriched in a Christ-centered environment and taught and guided by Christian teachers. The vision that these ministers and leaders had in 1945 still stands today as our Christian teachers strive to develop the hearts and minds of students in the name of Christ.  
BMS values the extraordinary role that churches and church leaders play in the lives of our students.  We are deeply grateful for the home churches of our families.  These churches, from many denominations, include:

We are educating students from many  Christian faith backgrounds. Some people believe that Belleville Mennonite School is actually a school for Amish or primarily for Mennonites — a surprising statement for those who attend BMS and know about the school. Despite being located in the heart of Amish country, BMS is a PreK-12th grade school offering a Christ-centered, excellent education to students of all Christian faiths.
