Bishop LeBlond High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in St. Joseph, Missouri. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-Saint Joseph.
Bishop LeBlond High School was established as an all-girls school in 1960 by the Benedictine Sisters (O.S.B.) of Atchison, KS. It succeeded Convent of the Sacred Heart (which was located at 12th and Messanie Streets) when the Madames of the Sacred Heart (R.S.C.J.) withdrew from St. Joseph. It was named after Bishop Charles H. LeBlond, former Bishop of the diocese. It became coeducational when the all-boys Christian Brothers High School closed in 1970.
