Welcome to Guardian Battalion of the Bishop Ireton High School Cadet Program in Alexandria, Virginia.

The Bishop Ireton High School Cadet Program helps develop citizens of character that are dedicated to serving their community and their nation.  The Cadet Program is for those cadets who have a desire to learn about the Armed Forces of the United States.



The objective of the Cadet Program is to introduce its cadets to military life and to assist in developing in them a sense of patriotism, courage, and self-reliance.

In partnership with the various entities of the United States Coast Guard, the cadets of Guardian Battalion experience unique training opportunities that are rarely available to other individuals their age.
