Student character


An Extension of Our Spiritual Philosophy

We regard our disciplinary program to be an extension of our spiritual philosophy. Our desire and intent is for students to learn certain lifetime core values while here at Belleview.

Key Principles:
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated (Luke 6:31).
  • No one is allowed to keep a teacher from teaching or a student from learning.

Values and Expectations

The following are some behaviors that reflect character values and expectations that we strive to teach and model at BCS. Students are encouraged to demonstrate these behaviors at all times.

Pawsitive Points for Positive Behavior

“Pawsitive Points” recognize students who exhibit positive behaviors such as being servant leaders, courteous, honest, obedient, trustworthy, etc. Any student earning 25 merit awards will receive a special award for their behavior. We believe that recognizing and encouraging positive behavior generally stimulates more positive behavior. 

Dress code


The goal of the Belleview dress code is to ensure that students are dressed in a manner that is clean, neat, conservative, and modest.


To enable our teachers to focus on academics rather than policing dress code, we require students to wear modest polos, t-shirts, blouses, etc. Shirts may have an approved symbol, such as the Nike swoosh and messages such as Christian themed, patriotic, sports teams, or Belleview T-shirts. Our primary objective is to teach the values of appropriate dress rather than dictating detailed rules. Students should avoid extremes and practice moderation of any style. Students who violate the dress code may be sent to the office to call parents to come and provide a change of clothes.
