Thank you for your interest

We believe that the process of finding qualified teachers who are seeking to make Bishop Ireton a home is a two-way street. We look to provide applicants with as much information as possible in order to ensure that our mission and educational philosophy matches your own. Our website should give you an introduction to the challenging, spiritual, and personalized education that enables Bishop Ireton students to achieve success in high school and beyond.

Be who you are and be that well

We 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. We believe that finding the right teachers is paramount in giving our students the best opportunities to be successful.

Our vision is to inspire each and every student to grow in their Catholic faith through the love of God and one another. We are looking for energetic, passionate teachers who welcome the challenges of teaching and who can maintain a sense of perspective in their years here at Bishop Ireton. We are looking for teachers who demonstrate maturity, professionalism, creativity and the ability to work in a collegiate environment. Strong candidates display a consistent work ethic, pursue professional development opportunities and understand that our profession is a ministry not merely a job.
In order to carry out our mission, we are looking for teachers who are committed to:

  • Integrating a Catholic and Salesian spirit into their subject matter while keeping St. Francis de Sales’ motto of “fortiter et suaviter” (firmly and gently) as a guiding beacon
  • 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
