Alexandra College

Milltown Road, Dublin, Dublin 6


Alexandra College is a leading Irish Boarding and Day School for girls aged from 3 – 18 years. Founded in 1866, Alexandra College provides young women with the highest levels of education and extra-curricular programmes at its twelve-acre Milltown campus and its ancillary campus in Rathmines, located close to the historic city of Dublin. The school’s liberal ethos encourages its pupils to be independent and confident young women, while also providing a structured environment to excel in their studies. 


As part of a broad curriculum that includes English, Mathematics, and numerous Business and Science subjects, the school offers a wide variety of sport, drama, and music programmes, and has a superb art department that actively encourages innovation and creativity in its students. Languages are also a key focus at the school, where students can choose to study French, German, Italian, and Spanish, as well as other languages available by private arrangement.


The wellbeing of students is paramount to the staff at Alexandra College, which provides strong pastoral care and an active support network to ensure the happiness and success of students over the course of their academic life at the school.


Alexandra College teaches curriculum set down by the Irish Department of Education- ranked top ten in the world – making the school a top destination for international students, who account for over 50% of all boarding students at Alexandra College. Additional English lessons are available for students of non-English speaking countries, allowing them to excel and fully experience life in an English-speaking country. Alexandra College, like all Irish boarding schools, is privately run and our students go on to study at top level universities in Ireland, the UK and across the world.
