At Dublin Oak we aim to provide are students with a ‘home away from home’ environment.
Our students learn to speak, but also think in English, usually gaining fluency from living a year at Dublin Oak, where all communication is through English.
Through weekly outings, the Dublin Oak students get to know local areas but also many famous landmarks around Ireland. They learn the Irish culture through these outings by discovering the many beautiful sites Ireland has to offer.
A wide variety of sports and cultural clinics are offered to our students. This gives students a choice to try new things that they would not have at home, or also to excel in something they are good at.
Ireland provides a very safe environment for the students. Our unique location, offers a safe and secure home away from home. Our extensive grounds mean the boys can see a wide variety of wildlife, including deer, pheasant, squirrels and rabbits and indeed frogspawn! The students have many opportunities in Science class to study the wildlife on the extensive grounds.
Our students make friendships at Dublin Oak that can last a lifetime, particularly as the students are living in such close quarters.
Dublin Oak boys have the opportunity to visit many cultural places in Europe throughout their stay including London, Paris, Italy, Barcelona and for the ski trip Austria, Munich and Vienna.
The man who profits from our human formation program will mature in the many different aspects of her personality. He will know himself in a real, objective way, and, because he is able to accept himself, he can seriously work to improve.
Spiritual formation is an ongoing process of conversion. The goal of the spiritual formation program is to help all the students develop an authentic spiritual life. Their thoughts and actions are influenced by a Christian view of the human person and of the world.
Dublin Oak Academy implements the Integral Formation® method of education - a proprietary and comprehensive system for developing and operating schools in accordance with the principles of education adopted by the Legionaries of Christ.
Apostolic formation enables the students to go into society to serve as Christian leaders and apostles, actively responding to the needs of the Church and humanity, creating a civilization of justice and love. Through serving others and a vibrant apostolic life, each student discovers Christ, becomes more like Christ and experiences His love more profoundly.
The objective of apostolic formation is to develop in our students the heart of an apostle, a heart sensitive and responsive to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of others.
