Opening Doors of Opportunity for Young Men in Southeast Washington

Bishop John Walker believed that education is the door to opportunity. Here is your opportunity to significantly impact a student’s life. Bishop Walker School students live in communities where more than half of all males will not graduate high school. The Bishop Walker School for Boys is changing this by providing a first-rate education to young men in their early years.

With extended hours offered eleven months a year, students get the high-quality academic and spiritual foundation they need to succeed in school and in life.

And this education is tuition-free, with little to no cost to families.

You can help by significantly investing in our students’ education. By sponsoring one or more boys during their time at the Bishop Walker School, you guarantee these students get the education and support they need to become confident and capable citizens.
