St. Finian's College is a Catholic Secondary co-educational school, the diocesan school of the Diocese of Meath. The school was founded in 1802 and was originally situated in Navan, moving to its current site in Mullingar in 1908.  The college aims to provide its pupils with an educational environment which is intellectually, physically and culturally balanced so that each young person is enabled to achieve his or her full potential.  The school has long been recognised as a centre of academic excellence and stands on vast grounds which facilities a wide range of sporting activities.

St Finian’s is also home to the Schola Cantorum. The Schola Cantorum operates as a miniature music conservatoire within the College.  Its purpose is to provide a specialised music education for boys and girls in parallel with their normal secondary school studies. Since its foundation in 1970, the Schola Cantorum has made a tremendous contribution to the liturgical life of the church in Ireland and to the musical life of the country and indeed internationally.
