Bishop Blanchet High School is a coed Catholic high school located just north of Green Lake in Seattle, Washington, United States. It was founded in 1954 by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle, and named for the first bishop of the diocese, A.M.A. Blanchet (1797-1887). Originally named Blanchet High School, in 1999 the title Bishop was added to make the school more easily identified as a Catholic school.[2]

According to school records, Bishop Blanchet has 1,050 students, 79% of whom are Catholic. The school employs 73 teachers (including one Dominican sister), 69 of them full-time.[3]


The school has a nationally recognized German program taught by a four-time state German Teacher of the Year. A school guide published by The Seattle Times reports that approximately 98% of graduating seniors from the class of 2005 attended some form of higher education. In 2006, members of the graduating class were awarded a total of $-2 million in scholarships.[4]
