College for Every Student

CFES

Mercy Secondary School is a College for Every Student school. College for Every Student, or CFES as it is known, is an American programme that is being implemented and rolled out in ten schools across Ireland in partnership with Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and we have been privileged to be invited to take part in the programme.

The aim of CFES is to create and maintain a college going culture in our school. CFES aims to help our students become more aware that going to college is a real possibility and not just a dream. It aims to raise awareness of the process involved in reaching 3rd level and try to equip them with the skills and attitude they need to enable them to remain in 3rd level.


CFES is built upon 3 foundations:
Pathways to College
Leadership Through Service
Mentoring

Pathways to College

Pathways to College focuses on making our students more aware of the process involved in reaching 3rd level education. Through pathways to college our students will become informed about the subjects you need for certain courses, the entry requirements for those courses and the colleges that offer those courses.

Leadership Through Service

Leadership Through Service will help our students express their leadership skills and potential through activities that make our school and community a better place. This aspect will help our students enhance their leadership skills, build self-confidence and improve resilience.

Mentoring

Mentoring involves providing guidance and assistance to our students during their time in school. It is on-going programme. Our second year students will be mentored by many of our past pupils who are currently studying at 3rd level education.

CFES has the ability to change the lives of those involved in it. It has been proven to improve academic performance and raise attendance of the students involved. It will help raise the aspirations our students for life after school. In Mercy Secondary School we strongly believe in our students' ability to progress to Screenshot 2019-05-20 at 22.08.27.png. CFES further supports their ambition and dreams in achieving that.
