Senior ‘Baby Ads’

Class of 2023 Yearbook ‘Baby Ads’

A popular BCHS tradition, Senior Congratulatory Ads, commonly know as ‘Baby Ads’, offer parents/guardians of seniors the opportunity to leave lasting well wishes to your graduate and the Class of 2023 in the Citadel, the BCHS yearbook. The money you pay continues to support the school and helps to defray the cost of the yearbook.

In partnership with Walsworth Publishing Company, our yearbook publisher, you have have three options to develop and submit these ads:

  1. Design your ad with the help of Walsworth software walking you through the process
  2. Upload your own designed ad to Walsworth software
  3. The school designs the ad (which allows you to drop off photos at the school)
All parents/guardians should setup an account in the Walsworth software, even if you use option #3 above or are dropping off your payment, message or photos! The software helps us keep track of orders, as well as allowing you to make payment for the ad, upload photos and add messages.


Read below before starting

DON’T USE A MOBILE DEVICE, such as a phone or iPad to use the Walsworth Software. This software will ONLY work on laptops or desktops.
  1. EVERYONE should start with the online form to enter your information.
  2. There is no way to save an incomplete ad in the Walsworth software. So, before beginning, have your photos, message and payment ready when you log onto the site. Ads must be completed and submitted at one time.
  3. Photos:
    • Photos and messages can be added via the online portal. Or, you will also have the option in the software to choose to bring them into the school.
    • Large photos will be re-sized to fit. We ask that no nude photos, regardless of age, be submitted. We especially like funny, entertaining baby photos.
    • If bringing/mailing photos, we will scan them and return to you as soon as possible. Please include your name and contact as well as your senior’s name in any communication. Address any mailed items to Bishop Chatard High School, ATTN: Citadel Yearbook/Maggie Kassenbrock.
  4. Payment: Payment can be made online (PayPal or credit card) – or, during checkout, you can indicate that you are mailing in your payment. Make any checks payable to Bishop Chatard High School. Enter ‘yearbook ad’ in the memo line and mail or bring to: Bishop Chatard High School, ATTN: Citadel Yearbook/Maggie Kassenbrock, 5885 Crittenden Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220.


  5. Ads will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, as space is limited. So, complete your ad request AND payment as soon as possible to reserve your space in The Citadel.
  6. The Walsworth software link below takes you to the Bishop Chatard High School Yearbook Ads page. There will be just one place that allows you to create the ad. It will walk you through the steps.
  7. Each senior receives a yearbook, so there is no need to purchase one.
