Belvedere College is a Catholic school under the trusteeship of the Society of Jesus. The school is committed to high academic standards and provides a rich and diverse curriculum catering for the needs of each individual student.
It strives for excellence also in areas of sport and culture, social concern and spiritual values and students are encouraged and challenged to realise their full potential as human beings.
The school is fee-paying but ten per cent of the pupils from the inner city area of Dublin where the school is situated have all their fees and education costs paid for them as part of the school’s social justice bursary scheme.
The mission of the Belvedere Community - Jesuits, Board, Staff, Parents, present students and past pupils - is to ensure that graduates of the College by their relationship with Jesus Christ and through living Gospel values shall be persons for others in leadership and example in the pursuit of a just world.
The family, as the primary educator, through its commitment to the values of the school, shares the responsibility for the students' education.
Belvedere today continues a tradition of over 170 years in the Jesuit approach to education.
