Belmont Academy Charter School (BACS) meets the needs of the Belmont neighborhood’s young children by offering Head Start programs, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten. Housed in a loved historic building, BACS’s approximately 240 early learners are prepared for elementary school success in a nurturing and family-like environment. Typically, BACS students transition into Belmont Charter School for 1st grade.
We are proud of the impact we have had in our students’ lives. Learn more about the Belmont Academy Charter School experience through a video produced pro bono by EARF Studios and former BACS teacher Ana Gonzalez.
A Day in the life at Belmont Academy Charter School
Social Emotional Learning
Parents as Partners
Students begin their day with a healthy breakfast.
Each day, every class has a morning meeting where we learn about each other and have fun preparing for the day ahead. This also helps us to build strong relationships between friends and between each teacher and student.
Children are engaged in learning that is developmentally appropriate and individualized.
At recess we promote physical activity as we believe it optimizes learning and provides creative social and emotional growth.
We promote play as we believe it is crucial in a child’s social and emotional development.
We believe parents are our partners in their children’s learning.
We sit with each newly enrolled family to learn their goals and hopes for their children. Monthly parent learning and engagement events are held each month.
Many of the students stay after school for extended learning and fun.
Programs include art, music, science, and sports.
“I love their curriculum. My child enjoys every minute of it.”
