About Bellesini Academy

Bellesini Academy is an independent, tuition-free Catholic middle school dedicated to providing quality scholarship education to young men and women of all faiths from limited financial means 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. Our small classes, challenging curriculum, extended school day, month-long summer program, and alumni support program help our students reach their full potential.

We are celebrating nineteen years of providing hope and successful futures to young men and women in Lawrence. 100% of Bellesini students go on to attend private preparatory high schools, and 97% of post-secondary Bellesini alumni have gone on to attend college, with another 3% attending technical schools or serving in the military.

As COVID shutdowns prevented Lawrence students from accessing many of their normal support systems over the past fifteen months, Bellesini has continued to build bridges out of poverty and to success for our students. After serving our students through remote learning during the quarantine period from March through June last year, Bellesini opened in July of 2020 for the Summer Program in a hybrid learning model. We continued with a Hybrid Model in September including afterschool programs and virtual evening study. In the Spring we returned to full in-person academic classes and after-school activities, and virtual evening study for all students in grades 5-8.
