Iarbhunscoil lán-Ghaelach lae agus (lae-) cónaithe do bhuachaillí agus cailíní is ea Coláiste an Phiarsaigh. Is í an Ghaeilge an teanga chaidrimh ag múinteoirí agus ag daltaí sa scoil agus taobh amuigh di, agus tá dualgas ar gach dalta Gaeilge a labhairt. Tá ról speisialta ag daltaí cónaithe i gcur chun cinn na Gaeilge agus caithfidh daltaí cónaithe a bheith sásta glacadh leis an ról sin.
Coláiste an Phiarsaigh is an all-Irish Post primary School. It is co-educational and caters for both day pupils and (day-) boarders. Irish is the sole medium of instruction and communication.
