List of 4 items.

  • 1. Register for a "Brave for a Day" Visit

    Visits are optional, but highly recommended!
    The best way to see if BBHS is the right fit for 8th graders is to spend a full day on campus immersed in "life as a Brave." Sit in and participate in our exciting classes, meet current students and enjoy the opportunity to get questions about high school answered.

    Our Brave for a Day sign-up for 8th graders who will be in our Class of 2025 will open in early September 2020. To join our mailing list, or if you have any questions currently about the admissions process, please click here, and we will follow up with you.

    Go Braves!

  • 2. Register for the High School Placement Test

    To be considered for admission, merit-based scholarships and class placements, Bishop Blanchet requires all prospective ninth grade students to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). The HSPT consists of multiple-choice questions and a 30-minute essay.
