Bishop McGuinness High School is hosting an open house Wednesday, November 9th at 9 am and 7 p.m.
Centrally located in Kernersville, Bishop is the largest non-public high school in the Triad and is open to students in grades 9 – 12 of all faiths. At Bishop, the primary mission is to develop students holistically and to equip them to live and serve in a complex world in need of peace, love and justice. The school embraces the diversity of the student body and invites students of all faiths, ethnic and social economic backgrounds.
For 55 years, Bishop has been widely recognized for its exceptional academics and the excellence of its graduates. Bishop alumni have attended and excelled at Harvard, Dartmouth, Duke, Notre Dame, Wake Forest, as well as other exemplary colleges and universities around the world.
“100 percent of our students graduate and attend college,” says Kim Knox, the Admissions Director for the school.
Along with academics, the school provides numerous activities, clubs and sports. Bishop students pursue their passions on stage, on the playing field and in the community. As a recent winner of the Wells Fargo Cup for the best interscholastic sports programs, it is not surprising that sixty percent of the student body participates in 33 teams in 18 different sports. Bishop has won twenty state titles in the past ten years.
“Our students are intensively involved in the arts, athletics and in meaningful service,” says Knox. “The entire student body participates, giving back over 10,000 hours each year to the Triad community.”
Knox mentions that if you’re unable to attend the open house, should call admissions for a private tour.
