BASEC @ BHS
Welcome to BASEC @ BHS, the after school program focusing on academic support and organizational skills at Belmont High School.
What is BASEC @ BHS?
When many people think about high school academic support, they envision the specialized content tutor, who can help a student ace a math test or get an ‘A’ on a chemistry quiz. At BASEC @ BHS, we do value and provide content support, but we believe it’s necessary to re-frame goals to reflect how daily practice can shape one’s identity. We help students own their academic performance by supporting and holding students accountable to successful, realistic routines.
