From The Bishop's School

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? With core values of integrity, compassion, inclusion, intellect, excellence and justice, our community includes students from 90+ schools representing diverse religious, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. 20 percent of our student body receives more than $4.1 million in financial aid; campus life offers 72 sports teams, 40 performing arts shows in dance, theater, choral and instrumental music, visual arts options from photography to animation and more. Classrooms are designed for interaction and conversation rather than lecture. Bishop’s is an inclusive community that believes our differences are a source of strength.

Creative Sciences - Cross-Curricular Collaboration

Bishop’s Center for the Creative Sciences serves as a think-tank for STEAM and interdisciplinary education. Large and small-scale 3D printers, a laser cutter and a CNC router are available in our maker space to help students create, make and innovate.
