BBHS is approaching its sixth year with an international program! Each year, 10-12 students from around the world come to Blanchet with the intention of studying full time. Separate from a semester exchange program, these students stay at Blanchet for their entire high school career and graduate as a Brave. International students live with host families who help them integrate into American life and help improve their English proficiency immensely. These students become quite involved at BBHS - from football, to lacrosse, the spring musical, to the dance team, and so much more. Many of our international students go on to universities in the U.S., such as the University of Washington, Washington State University, Loyola Marymount University, University of California at Los Angeles, Northwestern University, Georgetown University and many other great higher education institutions!
Despite the pandemic, we continue to have interest in our well respected international program. If you have questions about how COVID-19 may impact your decision to study with us, or for homestay families who are interested in hosting students, please reach out directly to our Director of International Programs, Janah Valenzuela.
