As part of our proud tradition for catering for the needs of all our students, we also offer the innovative Leaving Certificate Applied Programme for students who wish to follow a practical programme with a strong Vocational emphasis. The LCA programme is a well-established two year alternative to the Leaving Certificate, preparing students for adult and working life.
