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.

November 21st Was University of Maine "On the Spot Decision Day" for Our Students!

posted Nov 22, 2019, 7:31 AM by Butch Richards   [ updated Nov 27, 2019, 11:58 AM ]

On Thursday, 11/21, twenty-two BAHS seniors were either accepted or offered a ‘conditional acceptance’ to the University of Maine in Orono.  Students who apply Early Action (by November 30th) qualify for merit scholarship money plus an early incentive bonus of $1,500.  All 22 students earned the early incentive bonus (total of $33,000), assuming their application is complete by the deadline. Each of our students earned a Merit Scholarship, and three of our students were offered the Presidential Merit Award of $8,000 each.  A total of $60,000 in scholarship money was offered to our students!


Merit scholarships are rewards based on high grades and strong SAT or ACT scores of each individual student. The other parts of a student’s financial aid offer are based on each student’s financial need as reflected by the FAFSA.
