Mount Anville Secondary School is a Roman Catholic, private all-girls post-primary school in Goatstown, a suburb of Dublin, in Ireland. It was originally an all-boarding school, but in recent years due to decreased demand for such schools it has become a day-school. It has approximately 659 students, and is attached to Mount Anville Junior School, Mount Anville National School and Mount Anville Convent.

It was established in 1853 by nuns of the Society of the Sacred Heart in the former home of William Dargan, an influential railway tycoon.

The school has its own chapel, featuring a stained-glass window by renowned Irish artist Harry Clarke, where Mass is said every Friday morning which is optional for the students and parents to attend. It is generally offered in aid of something, and during Lent, mass is said every day, with prayers and thoughts going to a certain class. The school has extensive sporting facilities, including a large sports-hall, three astro-turf playing pitches and tennis courts.
