Course Descriptions by Department
A high school curriculum must focus on basic academic and life skills, but it should also engender a deeper understanding of the individual’s role in the community, of physical self in the world, of situation in the natural environment, of relation to cultural traditions, and of one’s participation in humanity.
It is our goal that all students, given such a dynamic instrument as our school, will become honorable, independent, creative, and conscientious citizens committed to the improvement of their communities and a lifetime of personal growth.
At Belfast Area High School we offer several levels of most courses. With help from your parents, teachers, and the high school guidance counselors, you will have the chance to choose courses at the level that will help you reach your academic potential. If you or your parents have any questions concerning your choice of classes, contact the appropriate counselor depending on the student’s last name. We welcome your questions and ideas.
