School description

Brookfield College was founded in 1988 and from the very beginning offered students primarily a program for obtaining a Leaving Certificate, an Irish secondary education certificate that gives an opportunity to study at the university, that is, it was aimed at graduating (Senior Cycle). Today, the school studies about 110 students, most of them - citizens of Ireland and the UK (especially its northern part).

The college is located in the small Irish town of Tralee (population of approximately 24,000 people), in the county of Kerry in the south-west of the country. It is dominated by a temperate marine climate with an abundance of fresh breezes and a fairly high amount of precipitation throughout the year: The surrounding nature is very picturesque, peaceful, calm. Tralee, despite its very modest size, is considered to be one of the brightest tourist centers in Ireland: there are many museums, the Irish National Folklore Theater with regular performances, a large indoor Aquatic Center with a mini-golf course. The city is surrounded by green forest thickets, spacious fields, parks for walks and nature reserves with untouched animals and flora.

Foreign students can enroll at Brookfield College from the age of 15 (from the 12th to 13th grades of the general education school, the graduation classes in the Irish educational system). The entire educational process and the achievements of students are monitored regularly: they pass intermediate tests and control, semester exams. Before the final tests they will have to pass the Pre Leaving Certificate Exam: it shows how well the basic aspects of the school curriculum are mastered and how much the student is ready to receive a valuable diploma. All results of tests and examinations are reported to the custodians or parents by fax or e-mail - the family is always aware of the progress of their child. Each student works with a personal mentor: they meet after each assessment of knowledge and verification and discuss the difficulties that have arisen, determine the path for further education, the possibility of solving problems.
