Tuition and Financial Aid

The Bishop’s School is rooted in the Episcopal values of integrity, inclusion, compassion and justice.

We seek to provide access and affordability to all qualified students regardless of family background and structure, religion, ethnicity, financial ability or geographic location.

We recognize that a Bishop’s education is a significant investment; we appreciate the commitments that all of our families make in order to be a part of our community. 

Our financial assistance program combined with various payment plans provides options for qualifying families to afford a Bishop’s education.

The Bishop’s School allocates more than $5.2 million in financial aid and ancillary expenses to 20 percent of our student body.

Bishop’s empowers students to learn, lead and act with open hearts and minds, engage in meaningful dialogue and pursue their passions across disciplines. 

Applying for Financial Aid

The Bishop’s School uses the Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application, which includes assets, income, expenses and debts.

The financial aid application for the 2024-2025 school year was due on February 1, 2024. Limited funds are available for late applicants. Please contact with any questions.

The 2025-2026 financial aid application will open on October 1, 2024.

For all other questions or concerns, please visit our FAQ or contact Vivien Valenzuela Mallick, director of admissions and financial aid, at (858) 875-0809 or email
