Dear Bishop Ireton Students and Parents,
Welcome to the Bishop Ireton website and the celebration of our Fiftieth Anniversary year. Since the cornerstone was laid in 1963, Bishop Ireton has lived true to the motto to “Advance Always.” As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, we are again blessed with a tremendously professional and dedicated faculty and full enrollment of students in our classrooms.
During the past three years, Bishop Ireton has undertaken numerous campus wide improvements, including air conditioning for all classrooms and expanding wireless capabilities and digital learning access for our students.
Our academic program continues to expand generously with increased course offerings in Advanced Placement, Honors and College Preparatory level courses. We continue to “advance always” and infuse technology into our curriculum and enriching teachers with diverse and varied development of teaching. Our classrooms include Smart Board technology. We are increasing the use of iPads in the classroom for instruction. Our Library was completely renovated and updated in 2012 including the latest in technology and information services.
The work and theology of Saint Francis de Sales is alive and well at Bishop Ireton just as in the first days of the cornerstone being placed in 1963. We are blessed to be staffed with a full time Chaplain from the Diocese of Arlington. Numerous opportunities exist for students to attend daily Mass and receive the Sacraments. We also have scheduled Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament during school days.
Whether you are new to Bishop Ireton or return as an alum, you will see and experience the Ireton education and difference; an education that roots a young man or woman in character and integrity for today and the world of tomorrow. Please enjoy your visit our website and welcome to our campus!
May Our Lord guide and sustain you.
