letter from the director of admissions

Dear Prospective Students and Parents,

Thank you for your interest in Bishop Ireton High School! My family and I have a long personal connection to BI. I have worked/coached here for more than 20 years; three of my brothers went here in the 70s (we moved before I was in high school); my brother-in-law graduated in the ‘80s; 3 nephews and a niece graduated here in the late 90s and early 2000s; my daughter graduated here in 2013; and my son is a current 12th grader. From all those perspectives I can say with complete confidence that BI is an exceptional school.

We have a vibrant spiritual life rooted in Catholic values and enriched by our affiliation with the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales who founded our school 50 years ago. We have a long standing reputation as a top school academically. Our students are nearly universally involved in school activities outside of the classroom, and we are known for having a very welcoming and close knit community. Our students commonly refer to BI as their second family. As you investigate us further I’m sure these traits will become obvious.

The menu items above are links to all of the information you will need to apply to our school. I recommend that you start by watching our admissions videos. They will give you a great feel for our school community. Next you may want to look at our curricular information, course catalog, and the list of college acceptances for the Class of 2016. These can be found under the Academics tab at the top of the page. I encourage you to navigate through all the pages on our website to learn what else BI has to offer.

Once you have decided that you want to apply to Bishop Ireton, you can review the steps in our application procedure and also print the forms required to apply.I look forward to meeting you as you work your way through our admissions process. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me or my assistant, Mrs. Wilkinson.

Go Cardinals!!
