Brave Fund

Your support makes the difference during difficult times!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has drastically impacted the day to day operations of the 2020-2021 school year. Until all our students, faculty and staff can safely return to campus, BBHS has made many changes in order to continue to best serve our students.

Classes may be online, for now, but students are still receiving a top-notch, college prep education and have the opportunity to engage in many of the activities and extracurriculars they are used to participating in.

BBHS is outfitted in new technology to maximize the engagement of students in a digital distance learning environment, faculty and staff spent the summer months attending trainings, investments are being made in ensuring proper PPE and precautions are in place for our return to campus when it is safe to do so, and tuition assistance packages have been utilized to ensure a Brave education is possible for any student.

Your generous support makes this possible! You make Blanchet strong! BBHS thanks you for your sustained support during these unprecedented times.

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 Brave Education.
