The Bishop's School Photo #3 - At The Bishop's School, authentic learning begins with curiosity. Add passion and opportunity - along with a healthy dose of faculty support - and every student is ready to take a seat and share a perspective in our intellectual community. Because once you find your place here, you are just a step away from finding your place in the world.
The Bishop's School Photo #4 - Athletics are more than healthy competition at Bishop's. They are a way of life. League titles are terrific (and we have plenty), but we cheer just as loudly for that first at-bat and the last runner in, because we want you in the game. Any game. And not just for now, but for good.
The Bishop's School Photo #5 - By their very nature, Bishop's students opt in. This includes the visual and performing arts, where students often go beyond their studies to become dancers, musicians, actors and artists of every stripe. Confidence in the arts opens new worlds to our students - and brings beauty to ours.
The Bishop's School Photo #6 - On our campus, student life embodies academics and so much more. Bishop's students immerse themselves in the traditions and cultural rhythms that have served our community for generation. But they also introduce a wisdom of their own. Each class has its own way to make every moment matter.
The Bishop's School Photo #7 - Our Episcopal identity underscores our commitment to empathy and compassion. Service learning is an established tradition and integral part of our school. Our program empowers students to identify their unique gifts, interests and passions, and discern how they can seek to love and serve our neighbors as ourselves.

The Bishop's School Photo #10 - Students seize opportunities offered by the School to travel with Bishop's teachers for language immersion, cultural exchange and service learning.
