Athletics at Bishop’s is first a teaching arena, where team play reflects our fundamental standard – emphasizing integrity, honor and respect for others – and where participation is a measure of pride. Sixty percent of Bishop's students are involved in our athletic programs. Bishop's Middle School offers 19 teams and the upper school has 40 teams.
At all levels, faculty-coaches set the tone, fostering a love for fitness, joy in the challenge and teams that turn synergy into championship athletics. We recognize the courage it takes to step up to that first at-bat. We honor fair play. And we applaud athletes who gracefully balance sports with academics and their many other obligations throughout the day.
