Bellefonte School District

Bellefonte Area School District is a mid-sized public district located in the south-eastern portion of Centre County. The Mission of Bellefonte Area School District is “Inspiring and Preparing Today’s Learners to Embrace Tomorrow’s Challenges.”

Bellefonte Area comprises four elementary schools (Bellefonte, Benner, Marion-Walker, and Pleasant Gap), one middle school, and one high school. A BASD student is known as a “Red Raider,” and this is their mascot. Their school colors are red and white. The district draws students from the surrounding towns of Bellefonte, Howard, Pleasant Gap, Zion, and Centre Hall.

The school district is happy to be part of the revitalized Bellefonte community, which is easily accessible from I-80 and I-99, close to 12 miles northeast of State College. The small town atmosphere, historic sights and Victorian architecture bring together the beauty that is Bellefonte. 

Bellefonte is the geographical center of the commonwealth, and is the county seat of Centre County. The “Big Spring,” a defining element of Bellefonte, is a natural spring that played a large part in the naming of the town. It produces over 11 million gallons of water per day. Bellefonte, which means “beautiful fountain” in French, still today uses the spring for all of its water supply.
