Every gift to Bishop Ireton is an investment in a young person's education and future.
The support of our generous donors, alumni, parents, and friends creates untold opportunities on Cambridge Road - from rigorous academics and competitive athletic programs to a robust fine arts department and weekend retreat outings. Most importantly, it supports the intellectual education and spiritual formation of young men and women in the Salesian tradition as they become future leaders in our society.
Tuition does not cover the total cost of educating a Bishop Ireton student, and many of our families receive financial assistance to enable their children to attend. Gifts to our Annual Fund or one of our scholarships play a key role in supporting the daily operations and enhancing the mission of Bishop Ireton High School.
