Although construction began the year before, Bishop Ryan Catholic Secondary School was officially opened on April 16, 1959, by Joseph Francis Ryan, then Bishop of Hamilton. The school was at that time located on Queenston Road.
On February 4, 1991, the students and staff started the second semester in the new location, a former public elementary school, on Albright Road. The old building on Queenston Road was demolished; a housing community called Ryan's Walk now occupies the land.
The new Bishop Ryan Catholic Secondary School building opened in January 2014 after delays in construction during late 2013. The 73-hectare site is at 1824 Rymal Road East and Dakota Boulevard. The school was designed by Svedas Architects Inc. and was built by Tambro Construction.
Bishop Ryan feeder schools include Our Lady of the Assumption, St. David, St. Eugene, St. James the Apostle, St. John the Baptist, St. Luke, St. Mark, St. Matthew and St. Paul
