Topic - Bishop Ireton High School

Bishop Ireton High School is a Roman Catholic High School located in Alexandria, Virginia. The school was founded in 1964 by the Oblates of St. Francis DeSales, an order of Catholic priests sometimes called Salesians, and originally admitted only male students. Bishop Ireton, more commonly known as "BI" or simply "Ireton", became coeducational in 1990 after the closing of sister school, St. Mary's Academy. In 2008, the Oblates withdrew their presence from Ireton and the school is now solely managed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arlington. Ireton made national news in April 2009 when it won a Verizon Wireless contest and was awarded a free concert featuring Taylor Swift, after sending over 19,000 text messages. ==Administration==The school is run by the principal. There are two Vice Presidents, one for Student Services, and one for Academic Concerns. The Vice President for Student Services moderates the Office of Student Government (OSG). There is also a Dean and an Assistant Dean. - Source: Wikipedia
