Irish Education System
New to the Irish education system?
Here's a quick overview of how it works:
The Preschool at Alexandra College is a two year programme for girls ages 3 and 4. Learn more about the Preschool.
The Junior School at Alexandra College is the equivalent of a Primary School. Junior School covers eight years: a two-year infant cycle (Kindergarten) followed by six years from 1st to 6th Class. The school year runs from the end of August to the beginning of June.
The Junior School day in Alexandra College runs from 8:45 am and classes end at 3:00 pm. We offer a full child-centred educational programme from Preschool to J6 and a smooth transition into Senior School. We also offer boarding for students aged 10 and up. Learn more about the Junior School.
Students from 12 to 18 years old attend the Senior School for secondary education. The Senior School covers the Junior and Senior Cycles, as well as Transition Year. Alexandra College Senior School starts at 8:45 am and finishes at 4:00 pm.
