Since the inception of The Academy in 2010 (formerly the Dublin School of Grinds), we knew that the success of the school would be built on the success of our students, and the great results they would need to achieve. And great results all start with one thing: great teaching. As such, it has always been our mission to ensure only the highest teaching standard is provided. By sticking to this mantra over the last decade, we’ve arrived at a point where we are the largest provider of part-time second level courses in the country.
Building on the success of our part-time courses, in September 2018, we established our own full-time school for 5th Year, 6th Year and Repeat Leaving Certificate students, opening our doors to 200 students on a full-time basis. We are committed to containing the student numbers in our full-time school to ensure that we provide an individualised experience to each and every one of our students.
We believe that in every student is the potential for increased achievement. Every student deserves to have the best teachers and teaching approach, as well as the best academic and personal development environment to unlock this potential. The Academy is not just about helping our students get great grades and overcome the challenges of the Leaving Certificate. It is also to equip them with the confidence, mind-set and skills to overcome challenges throughout their lives, realising their true potential, and getting the most from life.
