The Bishop’s School is an academic community pursuing intellectual, artistic and athletic excellence in the context of the Episcopal tradition. We are dedicated to offering the highest quality education to a diverse student body and to fostering integrity, imagination, moral responsibility and commitment to serving the larger community.
The Bishop’s Service Learning Program emphasizes consistent relationship building and mindful reflection, and is customized by each student based on his or her personal passion.
Service learning is an established tradition and integral part of our School. Bishop's students must complete 80 hours of community service during their upper school years − and nearly all students go well past the required hours. Last year, upper school students spent more than 33,000 hours in service to the community.
Bishop’s students develop and execute various on-campus, local and worldwide projects individually, as well as with clubs, sports teams, advisory groups and classes. These groups work together to address the needs of an organization or cause. Students reflect upon their role in the wider community, the interdependence of communities and our common humanity. We strive for our students to have these necessary life skills after graduating from Bishop’s.
