School and Academics
St. Macartan’s College, also known as ‘The Sem’, has a long and proud academic tradition, with past pupils to be found in every walk of life in Ireland and abroad. The school believes that every student is unique and has different gifts and needs. Teachers provide a broad, balanced curriculum which develops the individual’s talents and abilities. The school’s Transition Year programme encompasses a range of learning opportunities for students, including running a mini company, participating in a mock trial, charity volunteering, work experience, school trips, road safety and animation training.

Extra-curricular activities
A wide range of extra-curricular activities are available for all students including rugby, handball, soccer, creating content for the school TV channel, podcasting, choir, and debating.

Local Area
Monaghan is a vibrant hub centred around the medium-sized and attractive town of Monaghan. Situated just a 90-minute coach journey from Dublin city centre, it’s the perfect placement area for students who want an authentic small-town Irish experience, whilst still having easy access to the bustling capital city for weekend day trips. The county is
also ideally situated just a short distance from the Irish border so students can also venture to Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, to take in a wealth of arts and culture and even visit the world-famous Titanic Museum. Monaghan itself offers a superb range of activities for students to get involved with in their free time including great shopping, sports and even Irish dancing lessons! As one of Educatius most established placement counties in Ireland, students who choose Monaghan will settle into a sociable and safe community of local people who love welcoming international students to the area.
