Teaching & Learning

The very essence of BCS is the strength of our rigorous academic program that empowers students to think independently, critically, and creatively.

Our approach to teaching and learning is strongly influenced by our school mission and values. These drive the implementation of our programs as well as the continuous review of our curriculum so that it prepares students for an ever-changing world. Our students live academic and extra-curricular experiences on and off campus that help them grow into caring, principled leaders.

Bishop’s College School is committed to delivering excellence in academics, to providing a curriculum that is student-centred, and to developing in students their critical thinking skills, creativity, resilience, and independence.

At BCS, students study in a vibrant multicultural, collaborative environment. With a small average class size, students receive ample individualized attention and support through a coherent curriculum that balances the development of competencies, concepts, and approaches to learning. Students develop a love of learning and academic confidence to succeed in the different roles they will play in our global society. We tailor our holistic approach to meet each student’s needs, interests or passions so that they reach their full potential, while maintaining the highest academic standards of our Middle and Senior schools’ rigorous programs.
