Meánscoil mheasctha Chaitliceach is ea Coláiste Muire, Tuar Mhic Éadaigh, a chuireann oideachas d’ard-chaighdeán ar fáil trí mheán na Gaeilge.
Coláiste Muire is a Catholic voluntary secondary school in the Gaeltacht dedicated to the promotion of Irish as the first language of the community. The school is operated on the basis of the fundamental Christian principle of treat others as we ourselves would like to be treated.
For a small school Coláiste Muire offers an extensive range of subjects at both Junior and Leaving Cert levels as well as LCVP and the transition year programme. Students at the coláiste enjoy the benefits of small classes in a friendly learning environment. A tradition of excellent Junior and Leaving Certificate results exists in Coláiste Muire. One quarter of the students in 2013 obtained more than 525 points in the Leaving Cert with one student getting 600 points. Past pupils have excelled in a wide variety of careers and third level courses. These achievements range from winning university scholarships to national awards.
The school offers a wide range of extra curricular activities for boys and girls such as Gaelic football, hurling, table tennis, soccer, public speaking, drama, and school tours. The purpose of such activities is to foster and develop social and personal skills not directly addressed in the formal curriculum.
Coláiste Muire caters for all students from a wide catchment area, with school bus transport bringing students from all the local primary schools and from Newport, Westport, Ballinrobe, and Castlebar.
