Bishop Ireton High School is a college preparatory, coeducational high school serving students from across the Washington Metropolitan area in grades 9 through 12. Founded in 1964, Bishop Ireton is owned by the Diocese of Arlington, and is rooted in the tradition of Salesian spirituality taught to us by the Religious Congregation of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales, our founding religious order. As we follow our Live Jesus! Charter, we continue an affiliation with the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and will interact with other Salesian groups as well, as we collaborate on projects that express our mutual devotion to the spirituality of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal.

There are AP and honors courses in all disciplines and an Academic Enrichment program provides daily support for those who need it.
