Striving to make a Catholic, secondary education accessible  

At Bishop, we aim to provide students with an outstanding educational and formative experience that directs them towards a greater love of Christ and, in turn, service to a world in need of God's love, peace and justice. 
We recognize the financial commitment and investment made by families who pursue a Bishop education. We currently offer more than $500,000 in need-based tuition assistance to nearly 27% of our student body. 
Financial assistance applications for the 2024-2025 school year will open on November 24, 2023. Due to the changes in the NC Opportunity Scholarship, all current and prospective families wishing to apply for financial assistance must first apply for the Opportunity Scholarship.
