Starting in your freshman year, you will have access to a range of college counseling services designed to help you gain admission to the best college for you. As you progress through BBHS, you will work closely with your counselor as he or she advises you on the college search and application process. From special evening sessions on financial aid and admissions to hosting onsite visitation from college admission directors and representatives (more than 120 each year!), we are committed to your success well beyond your time in high school.
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 outstanding college application preparation, our counselors are also committed to helping our students thrive socially and emotionally.MAIA LEARNING
Beginning with the class of 2023, BBHS partners with Maia Learning
, a college and career readiness platform that engages students in planning for their future. It allows students to develop profiles, explore careers that fit those profiles, and build academic, college, and career plans. It will also help students manage college applications and build resumes and portfolios. You can watch this brief video
with more information about what your student can do with this platform.Seniors, watch this video to learn how to connect your account with the Common App.
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
