Overview

Blanchet's mid high consists of approximately 150 students in grades 6-8. Blanchet's mid high is housed in the same school building as the high school, but is physically separated from the high school classrooms.

Mid high students have their own cafeteria and locker areas, and the majority of their classes are located in the hallways adjacent to the "Mid High Commons."  Mid high students have their own student government, activities and yearbook.  Mid high students interact with the high school for all-school events, such as Masses and assemblies.

Clubs

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 mid high students:

Fine Arts

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 mid high drama.  Choir, orchestra and drama performances are held in the school's beautiful Wiegand Arts Center. 

Programs

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.

Student Life

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 mid high 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.
