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.

    I love how at Bishop Blanchet there is a broad diversity of students, activities, and arts. It seems like everyone can find themselves at BBHS -- it's not just for academic high achievers, jocks, etc. You can find students representing a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, genders and interest areas. The teachers and administration are really passionate about the school and the students. It is a collaborative, supportive environment. While all the kids are motivated to succeed in their own way - it's not the same sort of pressure cooker you can find in other school environments. The school also places a high priority on technology in the classrooms which is important for college and career readiness.

    I go to Bishop Blanchet High School as an international student. At Bishop Blanchet High School, I receive a Jesuit education. Even though I am not a Catholic, I am influenced by my older sister who has benefited from a Jesuit education. Here at Blanchet, I am a part of dance team and currently participating in several district competitions. At the very first moment, I knew Bishop Blanchet is my warm home. I have been surrounded by teachers who are passionate with their teaching and students, friends who will listen and support me mentally and academically. My highlight of the time I spent at Bishop Blanchet is my dance team. Within our team, we grow together and improve to a better of ourselves and I learned how to believe in myself and my teammates. We create such a powerful energy that could bring us together and be a family. I feel involved and connected among the people of Bishop Blanchet High School.
    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.
