As a Catholic School in the Salesian tradition, Bishop Ireton is committed to preaching and modeling the Church’s mandate that service rooted in justice is a constitutive element in teaching the Gospel. Students will be challenged to encounter Christ by serving the poor, dispossessed, and marginalized. The Bishop Ireton Community Service requirement stems from our belief that our students should share their talents eagerly for the betterment of society.
The program is designed to provide service experiences that increase in depth and intensity as the student matures. Every student is required to complete 60 hours of Community Service (15 hours per academic year) prior to graduation from Bishop Ireton High School over the four-year course of study.
