Now, after more than a half-century, Bishop Ireton has embarked on a bold undertaking to build our future now. We need to provide the next generation of students with an expanded campus and cutting-edge facilities to continue to build on our legacy of to Advance Always.
The four-story, 40,000 square foot Academic Center provides expanded and modern spaces for courses in STEM and robotics. The Dining Hall more than doubles the capacity of the current cafeteria and reduces overcrowding during lunch periods. It also serves as a multi-purpose space for events and gatherings. Connected to the cafeteria and adjacent to the St. Francis de Sales Chapel is an outdoor courtyard with additional seating. The Media Center and Learning Commons houses the library, an AV studio, and collaborative learning spaces. The exterior of the building includes a vertical “bio-wall” garden, an open-air study arbor and a glass stairwell for significant daylighting.
The addition of a new auxiliary gymnasium, and renovations to the existing fitness and weight rooms, allows Bishop Ireton’s Athletic Program to compete in one of the most competitive leagues in the country (Washington Catholic Athletic Conference). The updated facilities provides student-athletes the ability to train and compete at the highest level. Team locker rooms also received a face-lift and enhanced functionality for athletes.
