Head of School's Welcome



Welcome to Bishop’s College School.

As I enter my third year at the school, I value the connectedness of our community and the wonderfully diverse and vibrant individuals who contribute to the school every day.

The stories I hear from alumni and past parents all have a common thread: a deep love for the school, the friendships made, and the lessons learned inside and outside the classroom. For most, it has been life-changing and the influence of a teacher, houseparent, staff member, coach, or classmate has molded their personal and professional path.

BCS is a special place that offers a unique experience and we are committed to continuing to see the school thrive. We provide a multitude of opportunities for students to live and learn in a culture of equality, inclusion, and respect. These are highlighted by the school’s core values: Lead, Grow, Engage, Experience, and Explore.

We are proud that BCS is a leader in independent school education. We are proud that our faculty, staff, administration, and volunteers are committed to educating and shaping the next generation of global citizens and world leaders. We are proud that our students value and cherish respect, perseverance, independence, and leadership.

As we turn our attention to the upcoming 2022-23 school year, we are approaching it with excitement and anticipation as we purposefully design the best possible education and life experience for all our students. We also have many renovations and upgrades planned throughout our 250-acre campus this spring and summer and we look forward to unveiling these improvements when the students arrive in September.

It is an exciting time to join BCS and I invite your entire family to share in that excitement as you embark upon your BCS journey and begin living the experience of a lifetime. I hope you enjoy learning more about what makes our school unique, why students are happy here, and why our mission is to create a caring community of learning and development, where cultures connect and individuals matter. I wish you and your family health and happiness and a year ahead filled with joy and fulfillment.

Best regards,

Michel Lafrance
32nd Head of School
