Olympics[edit]

Blennerhassett is well known for holding its yearly Olympic festival, in which the students are sorted into eight "countries" (Argentina, Kenya, Greece, Spain, Great Britain, Italy, and Japan) and compete in various academic and sport competitions for medals. Blennerhassett was also one of the very first schools in the country to include the video game Dance Dance Revolution in its physical education program.

Tri-Star Award[edit]

Each year, students are honored for their involvement in the school. In order to qualify for this award for involvement, students must participate in the arts (choir, band, theatre, or Student Council), sports, and academic excellence. Students who win the yearly award for all three years are awarded the "Tri-Star Award", a prestigious honor that students are encouraged to include in their college applications.
