Athy College is delighted to welcome our Spanish visitors who will be in attendance in the college over the next six weeks. A very strong relationship has built up between these students and the local families that they stay with and many are on their second or third visit. Among the benefits are the additional income that in provides to our local economy so please say a special welcome to our visitors when you meet them on our streets.
Graduation night is a very special night and this year has been extraordinary. We wish our graduates well in their future exams and careers ahead. Graduation pics here

The proposed extension to Athy College has taken a massive step forward as the Department of Education and Skills this week issued a Schedule of Accommodation for the new build. The process has now begun which should see the multi million investment progressing to design and build over the next couple of years. This project will see an investment of in excess of 10 million euro in Athy.
“ The new Schedule of Accommodation will bring the capacity of Athy College from 450 to 1000 students and will include a much larger sports hall, additional 4 Science labs, 20 additional classrooms, a music suite, a custom built special needs accommodation and much more. We are delighted that the Department has responded so promptly to our extraordinary growth.
Athy college opened its doors on the new campus in 2010 and has trebled student numbers in the eight year period and is installing 3 temporary classrooms this September to meet demand in the interim” said principal Richard Daly
