Bishop’s Upper School nurtures students to think independently, learn collaboratively, grow their sense of self, and act with a greater purpose. We believe that a love of learning, a spirit of humility and empathy, inclusion and intellectual curiosity is the foundation for growth.
The School has an abundance of Honors and Advanced Honors courses that are taught at the college level and are a hallmark of our academic program. Teachers bring their passion for a subject to students. Whether it is with a former bench scientist who has developed the Advanced Honors Biology course or the former college professor who teaches Film as Literature, Bishop’s upper school students are challenged to work at the level of the first year of college (or higher).
Outside of the classroom, students are supported at every step of the way. Through athletics, arts, service learning and co-curricular clubs and activities, upper school students experience a student-centered, intentional upper school experience.
When students cross the stage at graduation, they will have developed into well-rounded young adults who boast intellectual curiosity, compassion and inclusivity through mindful reflection, holistic development and relationship building.
