Welcome to Bishop’s College School. Founded in 1836, our stunning 250-acre campus is home to a globally diverse group of engaged and motivated students preparing to impact the world.

With challenging programs designed to inspire, motivate, and stretch each student’s mind, body, heart, and soul, BCS is a unique place where young men and women can be themselves, develop respect for others, and learn the true meaning of leadership, character, generosity, and integrity.

Our mission at BCS is to create a caring community of learning and development where cultures connect and individuals matter. Our commitment to excellence in academics, wellness, athletics, creativity, and service contributes to a lifetime of engagement and global competence. We are preparing students for a life of continuous curiosity and instilling in them the essence of becoming compassionate and purposeful global citizens.

At this moment in the school’s illustrious history and in this unprecedented time in society, BCS is poised to impact future trends in education, create the future model of excellence in boarding schools, and act with inspiration, creativity, and courage. Now is the time for BCS to cement our place as a leader in global education, with a profound focus on health and wellness.

My family’s move to Moulton Hill this July is simply another step in the elaborate transition process that began this past January. I have been immersed in BCS culture and tradition and have had valuable opportunities to meet the current students, the faculty, staff and senior leadership team, the Board of Directors and many alumni. I have benefited greatly from the generosity and collaboration of our Interim Head of School, Mr. William Mitchell, BCS’63, the Chair of the Association Board, Mrs. Linda Rodeck, BCS’81, and the warmth and openness of the entire BCS community. My family feels blessed to be embarking on this journey and I am eager to embrace my new role.

I believe that each of us rises to the expectations that the people in our lives set for us, that we can all reach our potential if we are provided with the appropriate support and encouragement, and that life is defined by the relationships that we build, nurture, and value. My goal is for BCS to be the most exciting and engaging place to learn, the most inspiring place to work, and the school of choice for families.

When you visit our campus, whether virtually or in person, you will see that we have excellent academic, athletic, artistic, and extracurricular programs, a breathtaking campus, and a dynamic social environment where students can grow, develop resilience, and thrive. The heart of the BCS experience is characterized by the relationship between inspiring, caring, challenging, and supportive faculty and staff, and highly motivated, intellectually curious, and fully engaged students.

Everyone at BCS embraces a deep sense of community, finds strength in our diversity, shares a commitment to the care of each other, and understands the meaning of the work that is accomplished and the reason why we do it. With students, faculty, and staff from over 40 countries, our diversity sets us apart and our students learn from others with a variety of cultural backgrounds, helping to prepare them to be leaders in a global society.

We look forward to welcoming you to BCS in the near future so you can get to know the warmth and strength of our community first hand. You will discover our ambitious strategic plan and bold campus master plan, which are pillars of our ongoing growth and commitment to the betterment of our school.

I invite you to come and experience for yourself, the magic that is BCS.
