Bishop Guertin High School utilizes Follett Virtual Campus for our school’s online bookstore. For more than 145 years, family-owned Follett has served the education market and will help ensure our students are ready for the first day of school with course materials in hand.


Our teachers have selected the course materials required for the upcoming school year, and the Follett team has worked to make the books available for purchase through our online bookstore beginning on July 6, 2023. 


You can find more information on ordering here and how to order here


Please note, we encourage families to explore other online vendors such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble for summer reading books

Any money raised from the sale of these uniforms will be donated to BG’s office of financial aid.
