The Black Hawk Area Education Center

Welcome to Black Hawk Area Education Center or “The Center”. Our school services approximately 160 students from the 14 school districts in the BHASED cooperative. We provide resources and support for our students ages 3-22, whose needs are best served in a separate public day school.

Our school is designed for students who require a highly structured and supportive environment. Our programs incorporate academic, behavior and emotional support, functional life skills, and vocational training in a comprehensive learning environment to help each student achieve new skills and confidence.
