Course Information

Academic objectives in a college preparatory school depend heavily on work performed at school and at home. Homework for the Blanchet Catholic School student is not limited solely to written work; it also includes reading, studying, organizing notes into usable study form, and preparing for exams, projects, reports, presentations, etc. The purpose of homework is to reinforce material already taught and to foster habits of independent study. Daily homework is part of the Blanchet Catholic School experience.

Assignments vary, but homework is given daily. Good study skills are essential to academic success in both secondary school and college. Because such study skills and habits are developed and enhanced by regular homework, Blanchet Catholic School views homework as an important part of its educational program. The responsibility for homework is shared among faculty, students and parents, each having an important role to play in the development of good study skills and study habits.

Blanchet believes that education is most successful when what is taught at school is reinforced at home and what is taught at home is reinforced at school. We view parents as equal partners in their child's educational development.
