Recognized for student achievement, leadership and innovation, Bishop Lynch High School continues to build on a rich heritage preparing graduates for success. The 2017 graduation class received more than $22 million in academic, athletic, fine arts, and military scholarships and 3,500 college credit hours earned through the dual enrollment program.
In recent years, campus expansion projects have literally changed the footprint of Bishop Lynch. With the addition of Leyden Arts & Athletics Complex, a new 19-classroom academic wing, relocated campus store, administrative offices, and the school’s first Alumni Center, virtually every square foot of the school has been transformed. The Father John Gambro, O.P. Student Commons, located at the heart of campus, and five new interactive TEAL (Technology Enhanced Active Learning) classrooms opened in 2016. Bishop Lynch also introduced men’s and women’s lacrosse as a sport in the 2017-2018 school year. Starting in the 2018-2019 school year, Bishop Lynch will be offering complimentary breakfast and lunch to students and staff every weekday as part of the all-inclusive meal program.
In its 55-year history as a Catholic college-preparatory school in the Diocese of Dallas, BLHS has produced more than 355 National Merit Scholars, was named TAPPS Academic State Champions from 2004-2012, and for 10 consecutive years was recognized as overall TAPPS State Champions for combined excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts. Due to the school’s outstanding college-preparatory curriculum, millions of dollars in scholarships are awarded annually to BL graduates. Alumni proudly continue their education at prestigious colleges such as Harvard University, Stanford University, The University of Notre Dame, Vanderbilt University, and West Point Military Academy.
Proud of both its heritage and tradition, the mission of Bishop Lynch High School is to teach students to “strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world.” To see that each student emerges from their time at BLHS with a well-rounded experience, they’re offered first-rate academics (including the largest dual enrollment program of any private school in Texas), extensive guidance as they prepare to enter higher education, and a wide-variety of extracur-ricular, service and leadership activities.
