Bishop's is a bilingual, co-educational, seven day independent boarding and day school for Grades 7 to 12. The school’s mission is to provide our students with a complete education that will lead to success in university and in life as contributors and leaders.


Seven residence houses located on a 240 acre wooded campus, provide each a unique personality, provide a safe living and boarding environment and mold lifelong friendships for boarding school students.


The school was established in 1836 as the Lennoxville Classical School by the Rev. Lucius Doolittle (1800-1862). Traditionally, the school had catered to the sons of the residents of the Golden Square Mile and as a feeder to Bishop's University.

BCS became co-educational in 1973 after merging with King’s Hall Compton, a nearby girls' school. Bishop's is a culturally diverse, bilingual, co-educational, independent boarding and day school for Grades 7 to 12 (Forms II to VII). It is located on a 270-acre (1.1 km2) campus in Lennoxville, a borough of Sherbrooke, in the heart of Québec’s historic Eastern Townships.
