Summer Work Study: fill out interest form by April 28
We are currently collecting names of students interested in summer workstudy at BCHS. Various 1 and 2 week sessions are available. Preference is given to returning families showing greater financial need. We are collecting names until April 28. Families will be notified in early May of their student's session. View form here.
All Account Payments are due May 1
All accounts must be paid in full by May 1st for a student to sit for final exams and to return to school in August. If your student is a senior, they will not be able to participate in graduation and receive final transcripts if their account is not clear.
If you have questions about your balance or would like to discuss your account, please contact Karen Feeney, Tuition Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible. If you already have payment arrangements in FACTS beyond May 1, that is acceptable and you do not need to contact the Tuition Office unless you have additional questions.

Best way to contact your child during school hours
The BCHS Tech Department recommends your student setup a personal email account, through google or other email provider. You can then use that email to contact them. With their iPad setup to view their emails, they will have access to seeing your message throughout the day. (BCHS Student email accounts do NOT receive emails from anyone outside of the BCHS system.) Have your student contact the Tech Counter if they need help.

Training Required to Volunteer at BCHS
For the safety and well-being of our students, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has instituted safety protocols by which all employees and volunteers of its Catholic schools must abide.
The Archdiocese's program is called Safe and Sacred.
All adults who will be volunteering in any BCHS activity at which students are present are required to participate in this safety training program. Please complete this before you volunteer.
