Here at Alexandra College Dublin, we know that the aim of education is the creation of a sound mind in a sound body.
For over 150 years we have helped girls mature into young women with a balance of knowledge, experience and values that makes them ready to enjoy their lives and careers.
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."
Who do you think said this?
An Alex education is an Odyssey that will bring your child on an exciting journey. At 3, she will come to school excited with her satchel on her back. At 12, she will be champing at the bit of independence. At 18, she will take on the world.
It was Aristotle, my namesake, philosopher and educator.
Our students consistently achieve excellent results in the Junior and Leaving Certificate examinations. All of our classes and activities are structured to help our students enjoy a challenge and do their best. We celebrate success and recognise the effort put in by all of our students.
Not only do we promote sport in Alex for well-being and fitness, but our students also learn how to show up with deep presence, express themselves authentically, and embrace sincere relationships.
Music is ingrained in us as people, and is a deeply embedded part of the culture at Alex. Here, music is for everyone, not just for those who study it formally. It's a community activity that imbues the soul of the College.
At Alex, the visual and dramatic arts imitate and express life. They are a potent means of communication and make a powerful impact on the sensory perceptions of all involved.
Our teachers are fully committed to the inclusive education offered at Alex, where the strong bond between student and teacher offers security, support, and belonging.
"Those who know do; those who understand teach."Aristotle
