“We provide a quality education in a caring and orderly environment in which all students are challenged to reach their full academic and personal potential.”
St. Aloysius College, Athlone, is a voluntary secondary school under Elphin Diocesan Trusteeship. The school is managed by a Board of Management, funded by the Department of Education & Science, and operates within the guidelines / regulations set down by the Department of Education & Science.
The Trustees and Board of Management are committed to the successful implementation of recent legislation, in particular The Education Act 1998, The Education (Welfare) Act 2000 and The Equal Status Act 2000. They fully subscribe to the underlying principles of the legislation – partnership of accountability, transparency, inclusion, and respect for diversity, parental choice and equality.
St. Aloysius College aims to provide the best possible environment to cater for the Educational, Cultural, Spiritual, Physical and Social Development of all students. We make every effort to respect the uniqueness and dignity of each student through a pastoral care system/team in the school.
Our Catholic Ethos aims to provide a value based Christian Education in the Catholic tradition. We are concerned to uphold and promote Christian values and practices in an increasingly secular and materialistic society. Our Christian tradition challenges our school to be inclusive, to have concern for those with Special Educational Needs and the disadvantaged.
The characteristic spirit of St. Aloysius College is one which builds on Christian values and humanitarian principles which provide the context for the mission of the school, the school plan, its operating policies and the day-to-day life and work of the school.
St. Aloysius College tries to be a resource for the local community. We regularly review our Academic Programmes. As a school community, the Board of Management, Staff, Students and Parents aim to provide an environment in which each student develops Intellectually, Morally and Physically, so as to fulfil his/her role in society.
The guidelines which follow reflect the Trustees and Board of Management’s desire to publish, develop and implement progressive, inclusive and student centred admissions and behaviour management policies. We believe that these guidelines provide a satisfactory template of good practice and are fully in accordance with the school’s Christian Ethos and are compliant with recent legislation.
