Welcome to our new website!

Lorraine MynesDCW was founded in 1870 as a boarding and day school and has educated many generations  of young women in Wicklow. It is a school rich in tradition and talents, handed down to us through the dedication and vision of our predecessors in Dominican education and continue to inspire us today.

The Dominican motto “Finding truth through the education of the whole person” is an integral educational philosophy in our school. Dominican College continuously strives for improvement in academic, social and physical excellence for every student, while developing the individual talents of each student.

We have a superb, dedicated, enthusiastic teaching team where the focus is always on the holistic development of every student to reach to their potential. There are a large number of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities in which all students are encouraged to participate. Student Leadership and Student Voice are very important in the daily life of the school. We look forward to the contruction of the new Science and Technology building in 2022.

We work in very close partnership with parents in order to help students to realise their potential and enjoy their experience as a student in Dominican College, Wicklow.
