Meet Chase

Chase Apgar is excited to be chasing his dreams at Bishop Lynch High School. After finishing his middle school years at Cistercian Preparatory School, Chase came to BL as a freshman and has capitalized on the academic and extracurricular opportunities on campus.  

Chase is a member of the track and field and tennis teams, as well as a member of Mu Alpha Theta. While Chase lists English and World Geography as class favorites, this math whiz is on the mathematics double track by taking Honors Geometry and Advanced College Algebra/Honors Algebra II at once.  

“I would recommend Bishop Lynch to a prospective family because it’s easy to make friends here and all the teachers are there for you every step of your academic career.”

Meet Armando

Armando Parrish has a heart for helping others, and he used what he learned at Bishop Lynch to found Project Lorenzo, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to help end homelessness. Armando’s passion for helping others is inspiring as is his zeal for Bishop Lynch and the school’s campus ministry program. Armando is the chaplain for Angelico House, the co-founder of Refugee Promise and the vice president of operations for BL Ambassadors.   

With plans to major in theology, this proud St. Joseph Catholic School graduate lists some of his favorite classes at BL as Theology III and Honors Modern Philosophy.  

“Over the course of my high school career, I have developed a great love for Bishop Lynch. At BL, we make sure that every single person knows they are loved and that they are never alone. I have been blessed to call Bishop Lynch my home, and that’s what I would recommend to a prospective BL family.”

Four Pillars of Dominican Life 


BL’s vibrant campus ministry program nurtures the faith life of our school community. The St. Catherine of Siena Chapel is at the heart of campus, and Masses are regularly celebrated by our campus chaplain. Student chaplains also play a large role in the faith formation of the Friar family.  


Bishop Lynch celebrates community and cultivates belonging on campus. The House System brings students from all grade levels together to be a part of a house and mentor group for their high school journey. The house system has built a whole new level of student care, connectedness and camaraderie.


BL provides a customized college preparatory approach for a variety of learners with Advanced Placement, honors, regular, and essentials level courses. Bishop Lynch offers more than 120 classes and plenty of academic support as well, including a learning specialist, the Math Success Center and the Writing Center. 


BL’s Christian service program is student-driven and designed to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. BL provides opportunities to serve during the school day through the BL House System and optional Service Saturdays, in addition to outside volunteer work.
