Mission Statement

Arklow Community College aims to provide an excellent education for all students in an inclusive, caring and supportive learning environment. The college is committed to promoting the values of respect, concern and consideration and we encourage positive contributions from all in the community. We aim to provide an education appropriate to each student’s intellectual, physical, personal, social, moral and spiritual needs in a changing world. We endeavour to help each student to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens, who strive to reach their full potential.

Arklow Community College is different because:

It Is Co-Educational
We believe that boys and girls should be educated together and that they should have equal opportunities in life..

It Is Comprehensive
Our programme has the broadest possible range of subjects. We are aware that young adults in the future will require a far wider range of skills to survive in what will be a very competitive world. We, therefore, ensure that our students are exposed to Technological, Business and Practical Studies; to Arts and Crafts; to Literature and Culture; to Modern European Languages; to the Sciences and Mathematics and to Social, Health and Religious Studies.

It Is Multi-Denominational
We cater for students from a variety of religious backgrounds. Regardless of their religion, students learn to value and cultivate their faith, while at the same time learning to appreciate and value the beliefs of others.

Class Size
One of the most advantageous aspects of Arklow Community College is the actual size of each class. Where possible numbers are kept small, thus enabling teachers to give more of their time to students on an individual basis which has a very positive impact on examination results.
