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 $4.9 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 2024-2025 financial aid application opened on October 1, 2023.

To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The Clarity Application is mobile-friendly so you can complete it from anywhere. You are also able to save your progress and return at any time. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit, and you can share your application with additional schools that accept the Clarity Application for no additional charge. Please contact if the Clarity application fee presents a hardship for your family. 

Please remember to return to your dashboard after you complete and submit your Clarity Application, as The Bishop’s School requires you to upload additional tax documentation, should they apply, including but not limited to:

  • Partnership Return: 1065 and K-1

  • S-Corporation Return: 1120-S and K-1

  • Additional Documentation Identified during initial Review Process 

The deadline for completing the financial aid application, including relevant supplemental documents, is February 1, 2024 for new families and December 1, 2023 for returning families. 

If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available through the “Help” button in the bottom left of the screen, as well as email and phone support at or (206) 210-3752 in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish.
