Starting freshman year, students have access to a range of college counseling services designed to help gain admission to the best college that will fulfill their goals and needs. Students work closely with their counselor throughout the application process and evening sessions for families are also offered on specific subjects such navigating financial aid.
Juniors and seniors are invited to visit directly with any of the 120+ college admission representatives who come to our campus each year (more than 120 !), with sessions schedule throughout the fall..
We are committed to student success both in high school and beyond!BBHS students are assigned to counselors in alphabetical groups. Each counselor stays with those students and their families for their four years at Bishop Blanchet High School. In addition to providing college application preparation, our counselors are also committed to helping our students thrive socially and emotionally.

BBHS partners with Maia Learning, a college and career readiness platform that engages students in planning for their future.

Beginning in the 2022-2023 year, BBHS introduced a weighted cumulative GPA. Colleges use cumulative GPAs as one of many factors in the admissions process, as well as in awarding merit scholarships. By providing a WGPA, colleges will have more information and context to assess a BBHS student’s application. Further information can be found here, including the policy description and FAQ.
