Kylemore College offers a warm welcome to parents when they first visit our school. Our Home School community co-ordinator encourages parental involvement in the school and is also involved with local committees in helping to meet the needs of the community.
Our HSCL co-ordinator visits parents at home and works with them to develop strategies that will help them and their children. Parent/guardian support for attendance and study is a fundamental part of the school going years of a students. Strong school/parent -guardian links and communication are maintained throughout all programmes within the school. Information evenings form part of the introduction to all programmes and continue throughout the years a student spends with us in Kylemore College.
Advice and up-to-date information on Third Level Education, career choices and job opportunities are provided by our full-time Career Guidance Counsellor. Identifying suitable careers for students, assisting in the production of curriculum vitae, preparing students for interviews and arranging visits to career exhibitions are among the services offered by the Counsellor. The Guidance Counsellor also provides a personal counselling service to students on an ongoing basis.
The library provides a welcome space within the school for students to explore their own interests. It is professionally staffed and specially resourced to assist our students in achieving the best they can personally and academically.
Kylemore College is in a unique position of being located on the same campus as the Music Centre. A music scholarship programme “Music For Success” has evolved in recent years and provides an opportunity for students to experience a quality music education and receive music lessons in a range of instruments. This scholarship programme is only available to students currently enrolled in the college. A limited number of scholarships are available on an annual basis.
