Bishop Ireton High School uses three criteria when evaluating prospective students. The prospective student should meet the following criteria before being accepted:
A grade of "C" or better in normal 8th grade coursework (1 semester or trimester of grades required)
A score around the 50th national percentile or better in the High School Placement Test
Satisfactory discipline record
Each student is evaluated by our Admissions Committee. Improvement from the first quarter to the second quarter is considered as part of the committee’s evaluation. In a competitive environment, meeting the minimum criteria may not be enough to gain admission to Bishop Ireton. Additional factors such as religion, previous school, prior family member's attendance, and recommendations may play a part in determining admission.
