Bishop Canevin A Jesuit-inspired High School

Mobile Menu Toggle



Choosing the right high school is a critical decision. Finding the right fit is key. If you want something different…something more…then Bishop Canevin is the right place for you!

At BC, we teach our students to push the envelope, to look beyond themselves, and to discover all the amazing things that lie waiting for them, outside of their comfort zones. Here, young men and women come together from all walks of life, with new things to learn, new people to understand, new worlds to explore.

And the best part?

Everyone is doing it together, so no one is ever alone. In fact, students at BC become part of a community that dares to try something different – and to stretch itself past boundaries into new frontiers.
