Be who you are and be that well

All of us at Bishop Ireton want our students to develop to their fullest potential. Our patron, St. Francis de Sales, writes, “Be who you are and be that well.” To that end, we are facilitators in recognizing, assembling, and integrating the critical components of a student’s education.

  • Giving witness to Christ the Unique Teacher, in both their lives and teaching. As Fr. Brisson, founders of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales writes: “What greater thing in all the world…than to fashion souls. What is greater than to mold the morals of the young? More than any painter, more in genius than the greatest sculptor, is he whose art is to shape consciousness for good and form character who he can recreate in a student the image and likeness of God.”
  • Providing an environment which enables students to grow in their faith
  • Encouraging each student to attain true self-knowledge and a valid sense of self-worth as one created by God in his image
  • Providing a college preparatory curriculum that challenges and inspires each student to achieve individual excellence
