BAHS Students Linked to College Board and Khan Academy

posted Jan 31, 2020, 6:58 AM by Butch Richards   [ updated Jan 31, 2020, 7:06 AM ]

The Belfast High School Guidance department has been busy this month linking student Khan Academy accounts to College Board accounts that students have created.  College Board has partnered with Khan Academy to create personalized online SAT practice for students. College Board will upload a student’s score report from PSAT tests to Khan Academy SAT prep.  Khan will then give the student more personalized practice based on the student’s needs. There is also generalized SAT practice on Khan that any student can use, even if they are not linked to College Board to get personalized results.  


Many thanks to the Social Studies Department for allowing the sign up and linking of accounts during World History classes for 10th graders.  The Math Department allowed us time to sign up and link 9th graders to Khan Academy and College Board. Juniors were signed up and linked last year.  Students will be encouraged to use Khan Academy SAT practice during homeroom time as a way to help them earn higher SAT scores their junior and senior years.  Check out the site: satpractice.org

Recent Alumni Chat With Our 10th and 12th Graders

posted Jan 10, 2020, 7:03 AM by Butch Richards   [ updated Jan 10, 2020, 7:06 AM ]

     On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Belfast Area High School held its seventh annual postgraduate forum.  Recent past graduates were invited to attend during the school day to talk to sophomores and seniors about what they are doing in college, travel, internships, and gap years.  They offered insights about college and life after high school. Students noted how they felt prepared for college and what they wished they knew more about before leaving home.  They discussed the joys of choosing what they want to study, the freedom to make their own decisions, and the difficulty and stress of learning how to manage their money. They talked about life at college and school, how college is different from high school, roommates, activities, and travel at college that they are able to access.  They also discussed overcoming adversity and challenges, and how they were able to make challenges a positive in their lives.  

     Due to the generosity of the post-graduates and their time, we were able to hold two sessions for seniors and sophomores about college opportunities.  The School Counseling Department hopes this interactive presentation inspires young students to plan ahead earlier in high school for postgraduate opportunities after high school.  Hearing from peers closer to their own age is very meaningful to students. 

     Many thanks to post-graduates Brendon Moline (University of Maine), Alexia Sweet (Emmanuel College), Tyler Bartlett (Husson University), Dakota Coleman (Husson University), Alexander Doyne Ditmas (University of Rhode Island), Cali Joseph (University of Maine), Mackenzie Banks (University of Southern Maine), Maylinda Boynton (University of Maine), Matthew Kelly (gap year), Logan McHaney (University of New Hampshire), Caleb Hall-Arnett (Ithaca College), Lindsay Bruns (University of New England), Alicia Gaiero (University of Maine Farmington), Amy Gaiero (University of Iowa), Isobel Kelly (Champlain College), Bronsen Stevens ( Colby Sawyer College), and Lauren Blood (Thomas College).  Without the support and participation of our past students, we could never offer this meaningful presentation.
