Bishop Ireton: The School of Big Ideas!

Thank you for your interest in Bishop Ireton High School! We understand that selecting a high school can be an exciting and anxious experience. Our hope is that we can provide you with the opportunity to explore our school and see yourself as a part of our thriving community.

Whether it’s advancing your academics, growing in your faith, expanding your musical repertoire, excelling on the athletic field or serving your community, you will find that Bishop Ireton offers opportunities for every student to achieve their Big Idea. Our students are intelligent, thoughtful and kind and our size provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to explore their interests, learn from various perspectives and have that opportunity to advance throughout their time at Bishop Ireton.

Our exceptional faculty challenges our students with a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum. We have small class sizes to facilitate individualized instruction. They help prepare our students to be productive, ethical citizens of the world.

“Be who you are and be that well….” Is the Salesian expression that is an underlying element of the way of life at Bishop Ireton and students use it as a way to connect with our Patron Saint, Francis de Sales. Our vibrant campus ministry program encourages students to become their most authentic self. While rooted in the Catholic faith and Salesian heritage, Bishop Ireton welcomes students from all backgrounds and religions and encourages them to explore their faith and expand their learning about religion and service. Salesian spirituality is one of love, humility, gentleness, civility and respect. Living in self-truthfulness about who we are, seeing the good in another. Being unpretentious, natural and approachable. Extending understanding and compassion and being present in the moment. 

Explore our website, schedule a shadow visit, a school tour and come to our Open House. We also invite you to come to a game, take in a show or concert this year and see our students in action. You will be truly impressed. You can find more information on our events by following us on social media or exploring the events on our website.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help you through the process or with any questions you may have!

We thank you for considering Bishop Ireton High School!
