Belvedere College SJ is a learning community that is committed to providing academic excellence and nurturing a child to their utmost potential in a serene and safe environment. While Belvedere gives priority to their students’ academic performance, it also gives pastoral care and other personal development skills and abilities that will be useful to them outside the four walls of the classroom.
In the same vein, the school also runs a Social Diversity Programme (SDP) where bursary will be given to students from socially and financially deprived backgrounds. Many past students that have benefited from this program had gone to become leaders in law, medicine, politics, finance, academia, drama, and many more.
Choosing a school and enrolling your child can be very challenging. Especially, in a densely populated city like Dublin with several dozen high schools. But before embarking on the quest for a good high school, it is often recommended to compare the schools side-by-side in order to gather as much information as possible about the schools before concluding on whether or not to opt-in. Also, take into consideration the diversity of each of these schools, and how they operate; plus, whether the school is public, independent, denominational, or non-denominational. Some schools offer European languages and practical skills, while others do not.
However, to be qualified for a post-secondary institution, your child must score enough points in their Leaving Certificate exams.
Lastly, irrespective of what school you choose for your child, you will need to pay for school books and, school uniforms, and extra-curricular activities.
