School can now cater for 900 students
St. Joseph's Secondary School was founded in 1858 and has a proud tradition in offering an excellent teaching and learning experience to second level students in the local and wider community.
The school is under the trusteeship of Edmund Rice Schools Trust.
The latest substantial building programme at the school has doubled the floor space of the building. This brings the capacity of the school to 900 students.
The school scored a major first last year when it had an entry accepted for the Bloom festival in Dublin.
Entitled "Drogheda on the Boyne" and designed by LCA student Thomas Finnegan, it was part of the Postcard Garden competition. Thomas's design was selected from thousands of entrants and featured well known historical landmarks in Drogheda: the Viaduct, Millmount and St. Laurence's gate.
The group later met Prince Albert of Monaco.
