Who We are

Founded in 1861, St. Mary’s College is a Catholic co-educational secondary school located on an 11-acre site in the heart of Dundalk. Under the trusteeship of the Marist Fathers (The Society of Mary) and guided by Mary’s vision of service, our college caters for the educational welfare of over 700 students. We seek to provide for the holistic development and welfare of each of the students in our care through academic, pastoral and spiritual undertakings.

St. Mary’s College is a partnership between the Marist Education Authority, Board of Management, Parents and Staff. All parties are looking towards providing the best education possible to our students.

ICT at the College

Marist teachers are ICT leaders!

The Marist College has in recent years been at the cutting edge of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), having won a number of national and international awards for their computer and internet projects over the years. The College is constantly expanding its ICT capabilities.  With teacher-based classrooms, all teachers have computers and data projectors in their rooms which facilitate interactivity and the display of materials for class use. A number of classrooms have also been equipped with Interactive Whiteboards.

The College recently acquired 30 chrome books which can used by various class groups in the school. This is keeping in line with Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age and will assist Students in their CBA’s at Junior Cycle and other innovative projects.

A group of Teachers also participated in TL 21- Teaching and Learning for the 21st Century in conjunction with Navan Education centre and Maynooth University. Participating Teachers used ideas from  action educational research to promote changes in their own practice and in their learning environments.
