Academic Secondary School Year
We offer the Secondary School Academic year for students from 13 to 18 years. An academic term or year in Ireland provides students with an invaluable opportunity for increasing cultural knowledge and awareness and gaining confidence in using the English language.
Our service includes everything from assistance with school selection, arranging airport transfers, carefully selecting a host family, reporting to the student’s family or agent, 24 hour assistance and a guardianship service to all our students.
The Irish academic year is based on 36 weeks and this is the number of weeks, which we base the accommodation stay. It is expected that students return home for the duration of Christmas (approximately 2 weeks) and for Easter (approximately 2 weeks). If a student wishes to stay throughout this period there will be a charge for the extra stay.
In addition, Irish schools have a mid-term break at the end of October (Halloween break) and in mid-February.
These 1 week breaks are covered within the 36 weeks.
Full Academic Year - September to June
1 Term - September to December
2 Terms - September to Easter (April)
Closing date for enrollment for 2017/2018 school year is the 28th of April 2017.
