About Us

Welcome to the Beaver Area Secondary Campus, home to both the Middle School and High School of the Beaver Area School District. If you are searching for a place to call home, we invite you to explore our site and learn more about our schools. You will find a commitment to academic excellence through our course offerings and academic achievements. If you are already a member of our school community, browse our site to learn about recent news and activities on the secondary campus.

Our students in grades 9-12 have an incredible array of opportunities in education. We offer 12 AP level courses with nearly 80% participation by our students in AP Language and Composition, AP Literature and Composition, AP Government and Politics, AP US History, AP Psychology, AP World History, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB, AP Spanish, AP Physics and AP Art Studio. There are opportunities in the arts with an award winning Band, Orchestra, and Concert Choir as well as 4 levels of Fine Arts and Crafts. We also have extensive Drama and Acting offerings with a fall play and a spring musical that are among the best in Western Pennsylvania.

Whether you are a member of our school community, or looking to be a part of it, you will find our excellence does not stop in the classroom. Our athletics and activities incorporate the ideals of sportsmanship, participation, and pride in the school they represent. Our students are proud to be a part of a quality system of education and demonstrate that when representing us at an academic competition or an athletic event.

Our commitment to education through technology, academics, the arts, athletics, and activities have created one of the premier schools in Western Pennsylvania. We invite you to become a part of our tradition that dictates a standard of excellence. And to those that are already a part of that tradition, we commend you on your choice to be a part of educational excellence. Our people, from students to faculty, to staff and administration, make our schools a learning community, whose foundation is a unique blend of fostering relationships, honoring tradition, and embracing innovation. We look forward to having this site as one piece of our school community that will help to elevate the standard of excellence for all students through challenging academics, expansive experiences and respectful interactions, which equip our students with the skills and confidence to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
