We are delighted to know that your student is interested in Bishop Blanchet. High school choices raise many questions for families, not least of all the question of affordability. BBHS has a need-blind admissions policy; students are admitted based on their personal record and not their financial circumstances. We are committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of our students for four years. This school year, we awarded $2.8 million in tuition assistance and scholarships to 46% of our families.
Below are some examples of tuition assistance awards. Factors considered in determining an amount include family income, household size and other children attending Catholic schools. The deadline to apply for assistance for the 2021-22 school year is December 31, 2020.
Please note, in addition to need-based aid, every freshman applicant is considered for a Merit Scholarship. There is no separate application process for this scholarship, and once awarded, it applies to all four years.
