Dear Families and Students,
Fall is in the air! I hope that you had a wonderful beginning to another great school year. This year at Bishop Canevin High School we are blessed with many faith-filled, dedicated, and talented students from 30 school districts, 60 elementary schools, and 4 countries.
Bishop Canevin High School is the only Ignatian/Jesuit based high school in Western PA. At BC, our students are encouraged to do more – to reach for the Magis!
I look forward to assisting your family as you explore the outstanding academic, extracurricular, athletic, service, leadership, and spiritual opportunities at BC.
Here are a few key dates and related information pertaining to our admission process.
October, 2015 – March, 2016 – Crusader Shadow Days
These partial or full day school appointments are individually scheduled to allow a more personal approach to experiencing Bishop Canevin High School. Crusader shadow days are specifically tailored to meet the academic interests and talents of the prospective student. This day can be especially helpful to students who did not attend the October 2 and 11 events.
