Blanchet's clubs have been established to meet the needs of our students. As we grow, additional clubs or groups can be formed in accordance with Oregon Schools Activities Association guidelines. A group of students with a similar interest may petition the student government and administration to become a club. If they meet qualifications and are approved a club may be formed.
The following clubs are open to high school students:
Blanchet Catholic School offers several wonderful programs in the fine and performing arts. Students can enroll in orchestra, choir and choose from a number of visual arts classes, as well as participate in high school drama. Choir, orchestra and drama performances are held in the school's beautiful Wiegand Arts Center.
We at Blanchet Catholic School, working in partnership with parents and families to educate the entire child, commit ourselves to creating a Catholic preparatory academic community dedicated to providing a quality education for the whole person. We strive to provide opportunities for students to participate in a broad spectrum of co-curricular activities/programs.
One of the many benefits of attending Blanchet Catholic School is the ability for students to participate in a number of activities. Students are only limited by their time and interest, and are encouraged to experience Blanchet's many athletic and club offerings. Blanchet's small size allows students to hold leadership positions in several activities.
The high school student council organizes student activities, such as dances and pep assemblies. Annual school traditions, such as Spirit Week and Field Day, unite the campus community.
Twice a month an all-school assembly, called ”Tuesday Time,” is held. The student body gathers in the gym at 8:35 a.m. for announcements, award presentations and student performances.
