From Bishop Blanchet High School

As a Catholic college prep school with over 25 honors and Advanced Placement courses, BBHS offers advanced-level work before ever setting foot on a university campus. Our students get into (and thrive at) some of the country's best schools. And our small class sizes, low student-to-teacher ratio, and integrated technology mean that the learning experience is dynamic and engaging.

You will also find an unmatched array of electives, a professional-quality theater program, competitive and no-cut sports, and a campus ministry program focused on the formation of the whole student.

Bishop Blanchet High School Reviews

I’ve really enjoyed Blanchet. There is an intensely familial vibe and every type of person can find their type of people to be friends with. Unfortunately they’ve made some questionable highers recently that have derailed an award winning theatre department and hurt the Religion and English departments. The food is delicious but expensive and not particularly healthy, and they aren’t the best when it comes to student counceling. That being said, I’ve enjoyed every assembly and student event immensely and have found that many of the teachers do really foster the best in their students. I️ would recommend Bishop Blanchet High School to any student, Catholic or not.

When deciding where I wanted to attend high school, Bishop Blanchet stood out to me because it is a well-rounded community. Not only did Blanchet have an impressive academic program but also a high-achieving athletics, theater program. I love Blanchet because the brave community has something for people with differing interests. Blanchet is the school that any parent can feel confident and comfortable sending their child to because not only do their teachers care about them but their peers care about the community as a whole and are willing to help anyone in need. The teachers care about you as both a student and a person. As a student with learning disabilities, Blanchet has been more than accommodating. My teachers have helped me learn techniques to cope with these challenges and provide many after school sessions if I need extra tutoring. Blanchet is a place of love and support where you grow as a learner, catholic and a member of a community.
The teachers actually care about you. Some of them are rough around the edges, but a majority of the teachers care and want you to succeed. They will personally work with you to assure your success. I definitely would not be the woman that I am today without this school!
