At Selskar College we have put together an educational, pastoral and extra-curricular programme that takes account of the fact that students have many different needs and different ways of learning. We don’t operate a ‘one size fits all’ curriculum. We don’t just have one type of Junior Certificate – we offer two. We don’t just have one type of Leaving Certificate – we offer three. Many of our students progress to Further and Higher Education and to direct employment. We also offer a wide range of Further Education Courses for school leavers and mature students. Please take some time to browse through our site. Should you wish to get more information or if you want to visit the college, please telephone or email us and we will be happy to assist.

We want students at our college to be happy, respected and encouraged to reach their potential. We want them to be active participants in their own education and to develop respect for others and their community. We believe that learning should be fun and that by encouraging respect for each other and valuing the opportunities available we all grow and learn together.
