Our district is located in the northwestern part of Beaver County, Pennsylvania. It encompasses the communities of Chippewa Township, Darlington Borough, Darlington Township, Enon Valley Borough, (Lawrence County), Patterson Heights, Patterson Township, South Beaver Township and West Mayfield Borough. Over 17,000 people live in the 65 square miles of the district.

Blackhawk School District is suburban and rural in nature. It is located close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Exit 1A and Exit 2) and the Beaver Valley Expressway (Route 376) which is a direct route to the Pittsburgh International Airport and the city of Pittsburgh. Because Beaver County is situated between Pittsburgh and Youngstown, Ohio, county residents can easily avail themselves of the cultural opportunities found in larger cities, while residing in a small community atmosphere.

Within the District's boundaries are numerous retail shops, banks, restaurants, medical professionals, places of worship, and just 11 miles to the south is Beaver Valley Mall which houses additional retail stores and dining locations. Blackhawk is also a safe District to reside in with stellar local police departments and fire departments on call at all times.
