Welcome to the Bensalem Alumni Association Inc. website! This is the first site for all alumni from Bensalem High School (BHS). Our site now lists every person who graduated from BHS, as well as some members who attended BHS and did not graduate with their class. Additionally, all the Teachers who taught at BHS are included as well. That’s a total of over 29,000 names!
A little information about ourselves: The Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. was established in 1986. Each year, the Association awards scholarships to deserving BHS seniors. The Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which relies on fundraising activities, membership dues, member donations, and the unselfish help of volunteers to help honor not only our school, but also the students who make BHS great!
This year, we were privileged enough to be able to dispense $22,000 worth of scholarships to 12 deserving seniors. That number is $2,000 more than our record-breaking sum last year! That is due to the kindness and generosity of alumni like you! Press on the tab to the left marked "Scholarship Recipients" to see this year's recipients. Also, Thank You so very much to our alumni who have endowed scholarships this year!!
We host a golf outing every June to support these efforts. This year, our 36th Annual Bensalem Alumni Association, Inc. Golf Outing is being held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023. To register, click on the tab on the left ("Dues/Donations/Golf Outing"), or mail in your check, made payable to Bensalem Alumni Association, to the address listed below.
Our All Year Reunion (AYR) is being held on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 1675 @ the Ridges. Click on the tab on the left ("All Year Reunion 2023") to register. Our AYR was a monumental success last year, thanks in part to all who attended. Our volunteers helped set-up and run the AYR, and thanks goes out to them as well. Get your tickets early; we have a cut-off this year. We had over 300 attendees last year, so let's make this AYR the best one yet!!

We are always looking for volunteers. We hold our monthly meetings at the Bensalem Remax Office (1955 Street Road; Bensalem, PA 19020) every second Tuesday of the month at 6pm. We also have Zoom, to accomodate those members who wish to participate, but cannot attend the meetings in person.
This is a free site, though we do request $12 membership dues per year to cover expenses and help with the scholarship costs. We depend on the kindness of alumni like you! Please consider joining us as a paying member. There is a Dues and Donations tab at the left that you can use to join.
Thank you for taking time to visit our website, and continuing to take part in our vibrant alumni community.
