Welcome to Bishop's College School,

As I begin my second year at the school, I am struck with how connected I feel to the history, culture, and people that make up this wonderfully diverse and vibrant community. I have learned much about the school’s 185-year history, but most importantly I have met the people that make up this community. The stories I hear 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. Thousands of students have come through the doors and thousands more will do the same before the school celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2036. We have much to be thankful for.

BCS provides a multitude of opportunities to explore, expand, and learn. The culture of equality and respect represents our diverse community and the rapidly-changing world that our students are growing up in. If there is one sentiment that I believe all BCS community members should feel, it is pride. We are proud that BCS is a leader in independent school education. We are grateful that our faculty, staff, administration, and volunteers are committed to educating and shaping the next generation of global citizens and world leaders. We appreciate that our students value and cherish respect, perseverance, exploration, independence, and leadership.

I hope you enjoy learning more about what makes BCS 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.

Kind regards,

Michel Lafrance
