Glenstal Abbey School is a seven-day boarding, six-day teaching school for boys aged 13-18. The school forms an integral part of the wider community associated with the monastery. 

A central value in the Benedictine tradition is the value of family and friendship and this is a central element of the education offered Glenstal Abbey School. Our context as a small school set in the beautiful County Limerick countryside facilitates this atmosphere. The life of the school, like that of the monastery, is based on the experience of regular prayer and openness to the world and to the other. Our students are encouraged to develop their own ability to study and to aim to reach their own academic potential. There are also a wide range of extra-curricular activities outside of the classroom.
