1. Rathdown School for Girls
Courses / Programs
Founded in 1973, Rathdown School is a private day and boarding girls' school located on Upper Glenageary Road in Glenageary, just south of Dun Laoghaire in Dublin.

We consist of a Junior School for girls ages 3-12 years and a Senior School for girls ages 12-18 years. A pupil’s name may be entered for the school at any time, although early application is advised.

Rathdown currently has around 600 girls enrolled - 400 in the Senior School and 200 in the Junior School. Class sizes rarely exceed 25, so it is possible to give individual attention and to develop the special abilities and interests of each student. We believe that each student is unique and should be valued for herself.

The school enjoys a superb location and setting, overlooking the sea and with inland views of the Wicklow mountains.

Our academic achievements are outstanding by any measure and the vast majority of our pupils continue to 3rd level education in Ireland and abroad. Rathdown was built on the proud traditions of four original schools: The Hall School, Hillcourt School, Park House School and Glengara Park School.

Camp Yojoa - Summer English School in Ireland
Courses / Programs
Camp Yojoa is for children and young people aged 7 -17 from countries across the world who want to learn and practise English, meet new people, get involved in our fun activities and be a part of our Camp Yojoa community. We believe that camp is a unique and life changing experience which supports the learning and personal development of our campers.

We believe that by having an immersive English elective our campers always have a unique opportunity to practise and improve their understanding of the language during camp. 

Campers will be put into three groups; beginner, intermediate and advanced based on parent recommendation and an assessment completed by our English teachers on the first day of the elective.
