Bellesini Academy seeks to break the cycle of poverty by:

1. Identifying and admitting students of all faiths who demonstrate academic promise and fall below the poverty line;

2. Providing at-risk inner-city students with the advantages enjoyed by suburban students including:

  • challenging academic curriculum taught in small classes by highly qualified teachers,
  • a safe and secure school environment,
  • after-school activities that help students develop non-academic talents and interests,
  • a supervised study environment in which to complete homework, and
  • quality summer programs that help maintain academic gains in a fun, camp-like environment;

3. Instilling qualities and values of good citizenship, morality, community service, and civic responsibility;

4. Preparing students for success in academically competitive high schools and colleges;

5. Placing 100% of graduates in private college preparatory high schools on scholarship; and

6. Supporting graduates throughout their high school and college careers in order to ensure their continued success.
