General Information

Description: Established in 1836 in Quebec, Canada, Bishop's College School (BCS) is an IB World School offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and certificates. With a campus bordered by farmland and rolling hills on one side and by the city of Sherbrooke on the other, BCS is a small, welcoming community and a second home to students from over 30 different countries. We create a caring community of learning and development where cultures connect and individuals matter. By embracing a rigorous yet supportive academic program and a well-rounded education that includes athletics, the arts, leadership and development, and global citizenship, BCS is preparing students to become tomorrow's leaders. We offer a Bilingual Option (English and French), as well as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award program, and are a proud member of Round Square, through which students can go on exchanges and volunteer abroad.

    Financial Assistance: Financial Assistance: Bursaries BCS is a member of the Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) programme. To apply for assistance, the family must complete the Parent's Financial Statement (PFS), available through the Admissions office. Completed forms, including a non-refundable application fee of $75.00 CAD, are returned directly to FACS for analysis to determine need prior to consideration by the Financial Awards Committee. Applications should be received by March 1st. Bursaries may be renewed from year to year conditional upon continued, verifiable need and full payment of outstanding accounts. Renewal applications for students currently receiving financial assistance must be completed annually and submitted to FACS for review by March 1st. Financial Awards Decisions The Parent's Financial Statement and the FACS needs analysis are reviewed by the BCS Financial Awards Committee. Amounts awarded depend upon need and the Foundation funds available. However, families must realize that funds are not unlimited and that a private education is an expensive undertaking which may require serious economic sacrifices. Every effort is made to distribute bursary awards as broadly and equitably as possible. The School holds information concerning need-based awards in the strictest confidence, and families are asked to do the same. Scholarships BCS offers a wide range of scholarships thanks to the generosity of many Alumni and friends. These scholarships and awards recognize achievement not only in academics, but also in important developmental areas such as service, athletics and the arts.
