A Bishop's Education

Mission Statement

Bishop’s is an Episcopal school that nurtures students of intellect and character to think independently, learn collaboratively, grow their sense of self and act with greater purpose.


Our vision is the pursuit of the question: How do our students learn and grow best? Everything we do must return to this fundamental question.

Diversity Statement

Bishop’s is an inclusive community that believes our differences are a source of strength. We are committed to the pursuit of diversity, equity, inclusion and justice. We respect the dignity of every human being and aspire to be a school where all are known, cared for and feel that they belong.

Core Values

Bishop’s core values are the fundamental beliefs that allow us to live fully into our mission and vision.

What do we mean when we talk about well being?

 A state of being associated with high life satisfaction, a sense of purpose, and ability to manage life’s ups and downs. It allows one to develop their potential, work productively and creatively, form positive relationships with others and themselves, and contribute meaningfully to society. 

At Bishop’s, there are four components to well-being for students:

  • Emotional stability and satisfaction
  • Meaningful relationships and connection
  • Physical health and wellness
  • Spiritual belief by which we mean a connection to something greater than oneself, and that helps guide one’s actions to align with their morals, beliefs and values
