Historical and Biographical Information

The Oblates of St. Frances DeSales founded Bishop Ireton High School in Alexandria, Virginia in 1964. The Oblates named the school after Peter Leo Ireton, bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arlington from 1945 to 1958. Initially an all-boys high school, Bishop Ireton became co-ed with the closing of nearby St. Mary’s Academy in 1990. The original school building located at 201 Cambridge Road has expanded over the years and is now under the Diocese of Arlington’s control after the Oblates left the school in 2008.
