Students can work on quiet research on the main floor, hold group meetings on the second and third floors, or head outside to benches on the adjoining terrace. A dining hall and field house along with a common area known as “the quad” complete the campus.

Bishop Eustace offers an exciting curriculum with traditional offerings and many electives for upper classmen.
