The Bishop's School

7607 La Jolla Blvd, La Jolla, CA 92037

The school was established by the bishop of the Los Angeles Episcopal Diocese through benefactions of land and money from Ellen and Virginia Scripps. Founded as a girls' boarding school, Bishop's became coeducational in 1971, when it merged with the San Miguel School for Boys. The boarding department closed in 1983, creating a completely coeducational day school. Bishop's 11-acre campus is a block from the ocean. The college preparatory program offers a balance between required courses and electives; Advanced Placement courses and independent study provide opportunities for acceleration. Attendance at weekly chapel services is required, and a six-year format of community service involves all students: Middle school pupils engage in group projects, while upper schoolers perform at least 20 hours of service per year in grades 9-11 and 40 hours in grade 12.
