The distinguishing features of Lucan Community college are:
- It is multi denominational, catering for students from a wide variety of religious backgrounds
- It is co-educational, catering for boys and girls equally
- It is comprehensive, offering a broad educational experience.
The motto of the college, Aontas meaning Unity, encapsulates the ethos of the college. Our fundamental belief is that school, and in particular the work and the activities involved, should be a pleasant as well as an enriching experience. We therefore lay total emphasis on the school as a community – of students, staff and parents – working in harmony. We consider that everyone has an absolute right to work and develop in a happy atmosphere free from unnecessary stress and tension.
