I love Blanchet Catholic School for its many redeeming qualities. The school and its staff make it a priority to make sure that students are comfortable and excelling. Though the school may not have many academic programs and clubs, the available ones are of high quality and have been a lot of effort into. One area of improvement at Blanchet Catholic School is its diversity and school culture, which are lacking in multiple accounts. The school has, however, taken this into account and has made it a priority to fix this with new programs such as the new "Spirit Club".

Blanchet Catholic School works hard to make every student & family feel a part of the community. The family feel is present in every aspect of the school. The teachers & administration truly know the students. The small class sizes offer students the opportunity to be individually challenged and/or get the help they need. Even though the school is small it offers all the same extra-curricular activities of a larger school and is supported by the students, families, faculty and staff.

Blanchet Catholic provides an opportunity for students to prepare their hearts as well as their minds and gives students the resources to make a positive impact on the world. The school offers academic rigor, faith based education, and a safe space for students to challenge themselves and one another.
As a Catholic student, Blanchet was the obvious choice. It is a college prep school, too, so I knew that if I applied myself to my studies, I could get into a great college later on. I had always gone to small Catholic schools so I wanted somewhere that would be relatively small. There are about 50 students in my class. All of them are incredibly friendly and alwas ask me how I am. I am a senior this year, and although we didn't start out as being close, I now feel like I have a big family at school along with one at home. I am very grateful for all of the staff that have helped me stud well and work hard. There are many clubs and electives to choose from, so you can branch out with whatever you want. Athletic programs here, from my experience with swimming and track and field, are exceptional for a small private school. We just built a football field and track, and I am so grateful for it. Al in all, Blanchet has been a wonderful part of my life, and I recommend it to anyone.
