An emphasis on belonging is at the very core of Bishop Lynch High School’s culture – and it animates a student’s journey on campus. Each student belongs to a mentor group and a house in the BL House System, which provides increased student engagement, leadership opportunities, mentorship, and camaraderie on campus. In addition, there are nearly 60 different clubs and organizations at BL to bring students together to explore shared interests.
