Our Heritage


When you choose to send your daughter to complete her secondary education at St. Leo's College in Carlow, you are choosing to give her the best education possible in terms of excellence in Teaching and Learning but you are also giving her the opportunity to witness first hand the rich heritage of St. Leo's College.

St. Leo's College was founded over 180 years ago. Its commitment to educating young women, empowering young women and encouraging them to excel in all aspects of their development is unrivalled.

Today in St. Leo's College we carry the torch lit by these first Mercy sisters in 1839 and we proudly continue their work by teaching the young women of Carlow and its surrounding areas to become the best they can be.
