Welcome to Bellesini Academy!
Blessed Stephen Bellesini, O.S.A. Academy is a tuition-free independent Catholic middle school dedicated to providing a quality scholarship education to boys and girls from low income families living in Lawrence. The mission of the school is to provide an academically challenging and highly structured environment that develops the potential for each student to succeed in competitive secondary schools and colleges. Bellesini Academy serves 105 students in grades 5 through 8.

Bellesini Academy utilizes a proven model of education that specifically addresses the needs of at-risk students who live below the poverty line. We provide small classes, rigorous curriculum, after-school sports and clubs, supervised homework time, and a four-week summer program. These integrated components ensure that each student is prepared for entrance to a college preparatory high school. Our students gain an average of two grade levels each year in language arts and math, and our graduating classes have been offered over $20 M in four-year scholarships to preparatory high schools.
