CFES

St Joseph’s is proud to be the first school outside of the United States to be a College for Every Student School Of Distinction. The aim of CFES is to create and maintain a college going culture in our school. CFES aims to help our students become more aware that going to college is a real possibility and not just a dream. It aims to raise awareness of the process involved in reaching 3rd level and try to equip them with the skills they need to enable them to remain in 3rd level.

CFES is built upon 3 foundations:

  • Pathways to College
  • Leadership Through Service
  • Mentoring


Pathways to College focuses on making our students more aware of the process involved in reaching 3rd level education. Through pathways to college our students will become informed about the subjects you need for certain courses, the entry requirements for those courses and the colleges that offer those courses.

Leadership Through Service will help our students express their leadership skills and potential through activities that make our school and community a better place. This aspect will help our students enhance their leadership skills, build self-confidence and improve resilience.

Mentoring involves providing guidance and assistance to our students during their time in school. Students in St Joseph’s take part in peer to peer mentoring and teacher student mentoring.

CFES has the ability to change the lives of those involved in it. It has been proven to improve academic performance and raise attendance of the students involved. It will help raise the aspirations our students for life after school.
