The Alumni and Friends of Bellaire High School (AFBHS) was organized in 1993 to provide annual student scholarships, improvements to the school, and provide faculty and staff awards to support the dedication of their work at BHS. The Alumni and Friends have given over $3,000,000 in scholarships & donations over the years. Funds are raised through our annual alumni event, alumni donations, and sale of Cardinal Courtyard Bricks (which will continue after the school’s renovation).
Any graduate of Bellaire High School is encouraged to register with the website to keep informed of all alumni events, class reunions, and school happenings.
