French Exchange Program

Since 2006, one of the signature programs at Bishop Ireton is the French Exchange Program with Lycée Fénelon Sainte-Marie Catholic School in Paris, France. Every fall, students and teachers spend two weeks in Paris living with a French family and visiting various sites including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris, Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, the Champs-Élysées, the Musée d'Orsay, Montmartre, and the Basilica of Sacré Coeur. During the trip, they have the opportunity to learn about French history, tradition, and culture during classes at Lycée Fenélon. In the spring, French students visit Bishop Ireton and live with current families as they attend classes at BI and explore the nation's capital.
