application process

Whether your passion is academic, athletic, or something in between, you will find a home at Bishop Ireton, Alexandria’s only Catholic High School. At BI, we believe that God calls us to be ourselves and to be the best version we can possibly be every day. For us, that happens through a supportive community where we are challenged, nurtured, and inspired to grow.

Before our Admissions Committee can consider a student for admission, the student must have a completed application file. An applicant’s file is complete when we have:
  • A completed online application accompanied by the $50.00 fee.
  • Your child's transcripts which should include their most recent grades (minimum of two quarters or 1 trimester from the current year).
  • A general school recommendation 
  • Standardized test scores. Prospective 9th graders must take the High School Placement Test in either December or January of their 8th grade year. For transfer students (prospective 10th, 11th or 12th graders) and freshmen applicants from out of town the Committee will use the results from the student’s most recent standardized test. 
Incoming Freshmen should complete their application by the January deadline. Freshmen who apply after this date and students who apply to transfer into the 10th, 11th and 12th grades are considered from April through August on a space available basis. All applications are weighed on the academic strengths of the student (grades and standardized test scores) and the student’s conduct and effort marks. 

Please contact the admissions office with any questions about Bishop Ireton. We welcome visitors and would be happy to arrange a tour of our school or a shadow visit.
