While it may be true that a school is measured by what its graduates become, for The Bishop’s School it is the “becoming” part of this belief that has shaped the School’s mission for 109 years. In addition to stimulating and challenging students academically, we believe that it is our role to help young people learn to be morally discriminating and to define ethical standards that will take them from adolescence to adulthood. We recognize that how we teach plays a crucial role in how well students assimilate information, as well as how well they gain insight into how they will live their lives. Bishop’s teachers are accomplished in their fields and bring a passion for teaching and young people, and our classes are remarkably small, most have 14-16 students. When students have spent their years at The Bishop’s School, we trust that they will go forward relying on their own strengths and on the qualities that we have helped them develop while they were at Bishop's.
The Bishop’s School is an academic community pursuing intellectual, artistic and athletic excellence in the context of the Episcopal tradition. We are dedicated to offering the highest quality education to a diverse student body and to fostering integrity, imagination, moral responsibility and commitment to serving the larger community.
