When Bedford High opened it cost $2.1 million, during this time neighboring St. Peter Chanel was being built. In the 1950s, Northfield Road was called construction road due to these high schools being built. In 1957, new Bedford High Opened at the same time as its neighbor. In 1961, the Bedford Board of Education Building 475 Northfield Road was built on the campus. In the 1970-72 school years Bedford added two wings which are connected by two glass enclosed walkways.

In the 1994 school year, Bedford High opened Bearcat Stadium with fanfare. The night Bearcat Stadium opened was the same night that neighbor St. Peter Chanel broke the streak.
