School Notes

  • Bishop Ireton has a vibrant spiritual life rooted in Catholic values and enriched by our affiliation with the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales who founded our school over 50 years ago.  We have a long standing reputation as a top school academically resulting in nearly all of our graduates attending college, where they earn millions in scholarships.  Our students are nearly universally involved in school activities outside of the classroom - from sports and clubs to fine arts and community service - and we are known for having a very welcoming and close knit community.  Our students commonly refer to BI as their second family.  As you investigate us further I`m sure these traits will become obvious.
