High School Programme
We have over 20 years’ experience in offering our High School Programme and take pride in placing students in top schools around Ireland. We organise and supervise students’ High School Programme from start to finish, taking care to place students in the best school for them. As a founding member of the AGPI, The Association of Guardianship Providers in Ireland, we provide the highest standards of guardianship for all our High School Programme students. Parents are kept informed of their child’s academic progress and general welfare at all times. They can be confident that their child will receive the best possible care and attention. Reports are sent regularly throughout the year. As well as receiving regular visits, the student can contact his or her guardian at any time and for any reason. All students and their parents have a 24-hour contact number for their guardian. An academic semester, or year in Ireland, provides students with an invaluable opportunity for personal development, increasing cultural knowledge and gaining confidence in the English language. The High School Programme is open to all students aged 12-18 years and is available in a wide variety of both private and state schools, throughout the country. The Irish educational system offers an excellent range of academic subjects in science, technology and the arts.
