Congratulations to Mr. Stephen Crooker, who was appointed to the newly created position of Director of Instruction at BI. In his new position, Mr. Crooker is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school’s academic and student life programs and related personnel. Therefore, any questions or concerns in the areas of academics and student affairs should be addressed to Mr. Crooker. Bishop Ireton’s faculty is fully staffed and will be ready for school in August. We look forward to welcoming our students to the new academic year.
