Coláiste Phobail Cholmcille is a co-educational school which places great emphasis on the highest educational standards with Irish language and culture at the heart of school life.
Coláiste Phobail Cholmcille opened in 1999 to serve both children and adults of Tory Island. Before the school was founded, the Island’s young people had to leave their families and home behind to continue with second-level education which at the time was only available on the mainland.

The school meets the needs of the local community by offering the following range of programmes:
- Junior Certificate (JC)
- Transition Year (TY)
- Leaving Certificate (LC)
