Take A Tour
Take a Tour Take a tour of our school during the school day.  Parents and their students are welcome to schedule a tour with Mr. Bill Coates, Senior Director of Institutional Advancement, who will explain our programs as he walks you around the school building.  Tours are scheduled on most school days between the hours of 8:00 am – 2:30 pm.  Call 703-751-7606 or email the Admissions office.  
Shadow at BI (Ongoing Throughout the Year)
Shadow  one of our students for the day.  Parents can schedule their 8th grade students to spend the day at Bishop Ireton following one of our students to their classes and lunch.  This is a great way to see our school from a student’s perspective – to be a Cardinal for the day!  We are happy to arrange a host with volunteers from our freshmen class, or if your student has a friend or relative here - in any grade – you can request them for a host.  We begin these visits at the end of September and they continue until the end of May.  We schedule “shadow” visits for any normal day here, but can only accommodate a limited number each day, so call early.  All shadow visits must be scheduled in advance with the Admissions Office.   Call 703-751-7606 or email the Admissions office to schedule.
Attend a Game or Performance
Come to a game or performance.  Take advantage of the numerous opportunities to see our school at public events like a football game, band concert or drama performance.  Check our website (the School Calendar or Athletic Schedule) for specific dates and times.
