Since 2006, Coláiste Mhuire has offered the LCA programme as an alternative to the Traditional Leaving Cert.This programme offers most of the Traditional Subjects listed above but with a more practical focus.Students complete subjects on a module basis that combines continuous assessment, projects, interviews and end of term exams.There is also a Work Experience element (One Day a Week) coupled with Vocational Preparation.
The first graduates of this course were in 2008 and they have enjoyed success in receiving apprenticeships, entering employment and pursuing further education through P.L.C.s.For further information on LCA, please contact the programme co-ordinator Mr Martin Gleeson.
The class of 2013-14 have received the first ever iPads in Coláiste Mhuire. They will use the devices to record as much of the work as they can to both provide evidence of their work for tasks & key assignments, as well as help compile footage for the promotion of the LCA programme for future years.
