At Bishop Blanchet High School, you will be challenged to meet your highest potential. As a private, Catholic, co-ed college preparatory school with over 26 honors and Advanced Placement courses, college-level work begins before ever setting foot on a university campus. Our students get into (and thrive at) some of the best colleges and universities in the country and around the world.
An excellent college prep program is only one piece of the BBHS experience. You will find an unmatched array of elective offerings; from woodworking, 3-D modeling and sound engineering, to a professional quality theatre program, a wide range of competitive and no-cut sports, 50+ student run clubs and a campus ministry program focused on service and the formation of the whole student.
Small class sizes, low student to teacher ratio and integrated technology means that the learning experience is dynamic and engaging. We offer bus service to the Eastside, Capitol Hill, South Seattle, West Seattle, Magnolia and Queen Anne on our private buses to support many of the communities where our students live.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
