The Future Is Now Campaign

Since 1964, Bishop Ireton High School has been entrusted with the privilege of helping to educate young people and shape their lives through strong academics and a shared spirit of service and community, all rooted in our Catholic faith and love of God.
Now, after more than a half-century, Bishop Ireton has embarked on a bold undertaking to build our future now. We need to provide the next generation of students with an expanded campus and cutting-edge facilities to continue to build on our legacy of Advancing Always.

The four-story, 40,000 square foot Academic Center will provide expanded and modern spaces for courses in STEM and robotics. The Dining Hall will more than double the capacity of the current cafeteria and reduce overcrowding during lunch periods. It will also serve as a multi-purpose space for events and gatherings. Connected to the cafeteria and adjacent to the St. Francis de Sales Chapel will be an outdoor courtyard with additional seating. The Media Center and Learning Commons will house the library, an AV studio, and collaborative learning spaces. The exterior of the building will include a vertical “bio-wall” garden, an open-air study arbor, and a glass stairwell for significant daylighting.

The addition of a new auxiliary gymnasium, and renovations to the existing fitness and weight rooms, will allow Bishop Ireton’s Athletic Program to compete in one of the most competitive leagues in the country (Washington Catholic Athletic Conference). The updated facilities will provide student-athletes the ability to train and compete at the highest level. Team locker rooms will also receive a face-lift and enhanced functionality for athletes.

As we begin to transform our campus, we ask for your financial support. A gift to this campaign will continue to allow our students to compete with the very best and brightest minds in our region and beyond. Together, we will succeed in creating a better Bishop Ireton for years to come.
