Cultural Opportunity
Bishop Chatard is fortunate to enroll full-time international students who enrich the diversity of our student body. These students live with host families who receive financial support to provide a loving and stable environment during the school year. Bishop Chatard partners with Foreign Links Around the Globe (FLAG), a non-profit headquartered in Michigan, to bring these students, who can be from almost anywhere in the world, to our community. If you or someone you know would like more information about becoming a Host Family, please contact guidance counselor Catherine Welch at cwelch@bishopchatard.org  or extension 2257. Learn more about FLAG at  here . Thank you for considering this fulfilling opportunity!
PSAT Information
Students who took the PSAT this Fall are now able to view their PSAT scores by logging in to their College Board accounts. Students have been instructed to create their College Board accounts by following the directions in the School Counseling Canvas course. Counselors are visiting classrooms to review various opportunities with students.
