The following students are being honored for their efforts during the month of September, being selected as "September Students of the Month": 9th Graders - Grace Fitzjurls & Josh Chun, 10th Graders - Kahla Braley & co-honorees Ryan Fitzjurls & Max Lewis, 11th Graders - Olivia LaRoche & James Noah Robbins, as well as 12th Graders - Mikayla 
Artkop & Max Howard.
In an effort to help raise student aspirations at Belfast Area High School, the staff instituted a “Student of the Month” program, beginning in April of 2011.  This program will recognize a boy and a girl at each grade level based on teacher nominations, with subsequent voting by all staff.  The CORE Mission Statement of the school will provide the criteria for selection: a clear and effective communicator, a self-directed and life-long learner, a creative and practical problem solver, a responsible and involved citizen, a collaborative and quality worker, and an integrative and informative thinker. The students will receive a t-shirt, a certificate of recognition, and enjoy a pizza luncheon with the Principal. Additionally, each student will have his or her picture prominently displayed in the school lobby and on the school’s web site. 

On the school's webpage, there is a link (sidebar) "Student of the Month" where a history of honorees may be found.
