The Irish Life Experience is a 25-day cultural academic program offered to American and Canadian high school students.
The high school program consists of a variety of classes, workshops and tours based in three locations throughout Ireland.
The goal of the Irish Life Experience High School Program is to introduce North American students to the essential characteristics and qualities of Irish life.
By being immersed in Ireland’s history and culture, young adults are able to better understand and appreciate a country whose people have played a significant role in the history of western civilization.
