At Bishop Blanchet, you will be challenged to meet your highest potential. As a Catholic, college prep school with 13 Advanced Placement and several Dual Enrollment courses, college-level work begins 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 means that the learning experience is dynamic and engaging.

But an excellent college prep program is only one piece of the BBHS experience. Here, you will find an unmatched array of elective offerings (spanning everything from woodworking to 3-D modeling to string orchestra), a professional quality theatre program, range of competitive and no-cut sports and a campus ministry program focused on service and the formation of the whole student. And, most importantly, you will find your place here in our supportive and welcoming Brave community of faith.
