Blanchet's first graduating class matriculated in 1999. Since then, our alumni ranks have grown to over 700 students where over 95% continue their education at colleges and universities throughout the country.
Blanchet Catholic School also maintains contact with what we call our "Legacy Alumni" - graduates of Sacred Heart Academy and Serra Catholic High School. Sacred Heart Academy operated in Salem from 1846-1984 and Serra Catholic High School was open from 1952-1968. A trophy case in Blanchet's lobby pays tribute to the legacy of these Salem Catholic secondary schools. Blanchet helps organize reunions and collects memorabilia from Sacred Heart and Serra Catholic. The school also publishes a quarterly Legacy Alumni newsletter called "Connections."
We strive to stay connected with all of our alumni - Blanchet, Serra Catholic and Sacred Heart Academy - and give them a home to return and reconnect with their fellow classmates at alumni socials and other alumni activities.
