Belonging at Bishop Lynch
We believe that welcoming each person in his or her uniqueness as a gift to the community inspires us to strengthen our culture of belonging.
Bishop Lynch’s commitment to the Catholic intellectual tradition encourages students to understand the world around them by thinking critically and creatively. Informed by faith and guided by reason, Bishop Lynch’s implementation of the Catholic intellectual tradition teaches our Friars to seek truth and work for justice in the world while on campus and as they live, learn and work as adults.
As a diocesan high school with a Dominican heritage, Bishop Lynch embodies the Dominican charism in its commitment of holistic education and the pursuit of truth or Veritas (the school motto). Bishop Lynch High School is a member of the Dominican Association of Secondary Schools, which fosters the Dominican spirit among Dominican Catholic secondary schools in the United States.
BL Belonging Board
Bishop Lynch High School established the BL Belonging Board in 2019. The group is comprised of 12-14 appointed students who have been trained to facilitate dialogue among their peers. In addition, BL Belonging Board members serve as an advisory panel for certain student issues and host Dine & Dialogue events throughout the school year.
This group is a member of the Dallas Area Diversity Youth Organization (DADYO) and BL Belonging Board members regularly attend DADYO meetings and also meet with other groups like the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas’s Jewish Community Relations Council.
