Annual Giving

Over sixty-five years ago, local parishioners began contributing to a special collection plate at Mass. The need for a new coeducational Catholic high school had been identified and the community banded together to ensure this need was met. Since 1954, Bishop Blanchet has rooted itself in Gospel Values to educate students with a challenging, positive and diverse learning environment. We inspire students to transform the world around them through a lifetime commitment to faith, scholarship and service.  Since its inception, Bishop Blanchet High School has been generously supported by its community of donors who believe in the power of a BBHS Education.
