Counseling Services

The goal of the school counselors is to assist students in their personal, social, and academic development as well as their preparation for college while providing all the resources students need to maximize their opportunities at Bishop Ireton and in the years that follow high school.
The freshman class is assigned to a freshman counselor who assists each student in becoming adjusted to high school, both academically and socially. After freshman year, the class is divided alphabetically and assigned to a counselor who will then work with them for the remainder of their high school career.
