The SOAR award was established to recognize high school seniors who have challenged themselves by taking the toughest courses available at BHS and have still maintained a high grade point average. For the 2014 SOAR award, students were required to have taken at least six advanced placement classes and maintained a 4.0 grade point or higher. Recipients were awarded a plaque and a $100 monetary award.

Also at the award program, 51 pupils received Outstanding Student awards for each subject area and grade level to recognize their outstanding achievement, motivation, and positive attitude shown in the classroom. Many businesses and individuals from the Bellefontaine area sponsor these awards.
