High School Scheduling and Applications
In order for the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District to meet
the needs and interests of diverse learners and to encourage career
exploration, we have developed three specialty programs housed across
the district. A student can apply to any program, regardless of what
their zoned high school is. Students should note that once they commit
to a specialty program, they must continue with that program for the
entirety of the year. There is an application process for each one of
the programs, interviews, and for On Tour, an audition process. These
specialty programs are a four year commitment and will have classes that
meet every day.
There will be a high school programming night on December 3, 2019 at your child's zoned high school.
8th grade students will be introduced to specialty programs at an
assembly on December 16, 2019. Please see below for site visits for
students and families to learn more about each program at the high
