Seventy-five percent of the graduating class at Belleview Christian is going to college next school year.

Despite only having 12 students graduating, that’s still an impressive percentage.

As for as the other three students, they may not be going to college but that doesn’t mean they will be twiddling their thumbs.

One will be attending Youth with a Mission, one is joining the Air Force and the other is joining the Navy.

When Jeanne Rogers, senior class advisor at the school, thinks of the class of 2013, she said she feels proud.

“I was so impressed that they were all so eager to attend college,” she said.

This school year marked a first for the school — the first year for its football program.

“Many of the seniors played football and it was a great way to end high school,” Rogers said.

Rogers said the graduating class would probably remember most about this year is that the girls basketball team went to state.

“It was exciting and we are so proud of our girls,” she said.

Another event she thinks the students will remember is the Spiritual Life Retreat at Camp Elim in Woodland Park.
