Spend a little time in the Bald Eagle Area School District, and you will soon find that our schools are often at the forefront of instituting exciting new educational programs and innovative initiatives. We have an excellent staff and all of our facilities are top-notch, even though we have the lowest tax base in Centre County. Our students simply “shine” – there is no other word for it! We regularly receive comments from visiting consultants, substitute teachers, and area employers, who say that BEA students are hard working, kind, compassionate, polite, and well-behaved individuals. The fact that our community, students, parents, staff and local businesses all feel that they are an important part of the “BEA Family” is the most special feature of our District.
