  • ParentsWeb - Catholic High School Parent Portal

    FACTS ParentWeb is our parent portal.  All parents have an account and can log on to review grades, check schedules and update family information.

    Parents can login by clicking the "ParentsWeb" button at the top of the website (coming in June, 2018.) New students will receive their login credentials at their Guidance meeting or by email in early to mid-June - if you have not received login credentials by July 1, please email the webmaster (webmaster@chsvb.org).
  • Online Student Bookstore

    Bishop Sullivan CHS has partnered with Adams K12 Student Direct (K12-SD) to operate as our online school bookstore. K12-SD will give families more options, including simplified eBook access and a rental book options.  In addition, they offer a textbook buyback program that will replace the concession service we offered in the past.

    Visit our new bookstore page for details about the new service and how to create your account.
  • Student Technology Access and Chromebook Program

    The Technology department is always engaged in making the student experience as smooth as possible.  Students, in turn, have a responsibility to use the technology thoughtfully and within the guidelines set forth by the Diocese.  Parents and students sign an Acceptable Use Contract at the start of each school year.
    Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, we started a 1:1 Chromebook program. Each student receives a Chromebook for use in the classroom and to work with at home. There is a yearly fee to cover the cost of the device, damage insurance and applications and filtering software. While the Chromebook is owned by BSCHS during the student's time at BSCHS; it is presented to the student upon graduation.

    We are aware that some families may already have a Chromebook. The Technology department will send a letter to parents of incoming students in June outlining how to arrange using a personal Chromebook at school.
  • Student Community Service - En Christe

    Our student community service program - En Christe - is designed to reflect our school's mission and educational values. 

    Each year a student is enrolled at Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School, they will complete 20 hours of service to an approved service organization or individually designed project.  They must complete all 20 hours with one organization/project or 10 hours in two different organizations/projects.  

    To learn more about the program, please see the En Christe page on this site.
  • Volunteer Hours - Optional Student Activities

    For students who are or wish to be more active in the community, hours spent volunteering for community organizations may be submitted that can count towards National Honor Society qualification and for consideration for the Diocesan of Richmond Volunteer Award (the latter requires a minimum of 100 Hours).

    Student service hours for the Diocese of Richmond are counted from April 1, 2016 thru March 31, 2017. Some examples of organizations our students have worked with include: Norfolk Nato Festival; Virginian Aquarium; Middle School Track Meet (working the concession stand); Parish volunteering (altar serving, chorus, serving the poor); Horizon Hampton Roads; Camden Trip; Equi-kids; Special Olympics; CHKD and other local hospitals.   If you have any questions talk with Mrs. Gillis in the front office.  Hours are also submited to Mrs. Gillis.
  • Student Handbook

    The student handbook is a great resource for all of our families and one you can download for reference. Reviewing our handbook before school starts can make that first day go a bit more smoothly. 
  • Uniforms and the Dress Code

    The supplier for our uniforms is BSN. Please check the Parents resources page for downloadable documents regarding dress code and acceptable clothing.

    Used Uniforms: We do have some gently used uniform items available.  You may purchase them for $5.00 per item.  As the items are donated sporadically, please check with us frequently during business hours throughout the summer. Questions?  Mrs. Debbie Davis can be reached at 757-467-2679.
  • Class Supplies

    Certain classes require specific suppplies - e.g. goggles, ear phones, etc. 

    You can download the list here.
  • Sage Dining Program

    One of the highlights of lunchtime at BSCHS is the great food that is prepared for the community by Sage Dining.  Nutritious, healthful and tasty, Marian Bittner's staff produces outstanding fare every day.

    Each student has a Sage account with a pin number used to electronically pay for their meal.  Parents can add money to their child's account by check given to the business office, or, more conveniently, using our on-line form.  Regular statements are emailed to keep parents up to date on their child's account balance.

    For more information about the program, download and read the Sage Dining Program guidelines
  • Crusader Shoppe

    Spirit items, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, ball caps, umbrellas and more can be purchased here.  The shoppe is open during some lunch periods during the school year and by request during summer hours.  Stop by our Advancement Office or call Mrs. Debbie Davis at 757- 467-2679.  You can also purchase items online.
