Coláiste Ailigh was opened in September 2000 in rented accommodation in Sprackburn House in Letterkenny, becoming the VEC’s third All-Irish School. Permanent recognition was received from the Department of Education and Science in 2003. The school caters not only for pupils from the Letterkenny area, but also has pupils enrolled from as far away as Fanad, Carrigart, Downings, Creeslough, Termon and Strabane.
In November 2013 the school community took a giant leap forward on Coláiste Ailigh’s journey when they moved into their beautiful modern new school building in Knocknamona, the first school under Donegal ETB’s remit to be built under the Public Private Partnership scheme. The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD performed the official opening of the school on 12th May 2014.
Coláiste Ailigh students are offered a high standard of education through the medium of the Irish language:
- Junior Certificate (JC)
- Transition Year (TY)
- Leaving Certificate
