It's a great time to be a BEAR!

Our community is our biggest asset and our students thrive as they  prepare for the next steps of their academic journey when they graduate. We value education of the whole person - and offer a complete high school experience, including excellent academics, a vast array of electives and clubs, meaningful service and retreats and competitive, comprehensive athletics and performing arts opportunities. Educating the whole person also speaks to our commitment to creating a more positive and diverse learning environment in which students are challenged to learn how they can contribute to a more inclusive and just world.Our students who call Blanchet home come from over 70 different zip codes in the Puget Sound area, 110+ middle schools and from multiple countries around the world! Our recent international students have hailed from Chile, China, England, Germany, Italy, Korea, Spain, Taiwan and Vietnam. All students, of any faith background, are welcome here!
