Last school year, the faculty and staff at Bishop Lynch completed a review of how the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT) should influence our curriculum design and assessment strategies. This review was prompted by the Bishop Lynch Strategic Plan and provided a key reminder for all of us in the school community that the CIT is the lens through which we look for the planning and execution of all teaching and learning at BL. This approach can be contrasted with any number of secular or non-religious frameworks for understanding the purpose and content of learning in a Catholic high school.
As we enter a new school year, Bishop Lynch faces a situation with our student body that is unique in our 57-year history. Over 50 percent of our student population has not experienced a full school year without amended schedules or muted Friar traditions due to the pandemic. Freshman, sophomore, and transfer students will have the opportunity to embrace the full participation of on-campus learning and activities for the first time in their high school experience. We look forward to this opportunity to more-fully welcome students to be a part of the action and energy that makes our school and student-life so vibrant.
Faithful to Catholic Tradition and to our Dominican heritage of scholarship and service, Bishop Lynch High School promotes the development of the total person by bringing together a diverse community in a rigorous, college preparatory environment where students are taught to strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world. - Founded in 1963
