Academic Year Programme


Horizon offers International Students the opportunity to attend and study in an Irish Second Level School for a Part-Term, Full-Term or a Full Academic Year.

Who is our programme suitable for?

Horizon’s exciting and rewarding Academic Year Programme is open to students aged 12 to 18 and is available at a number of selected Second Level Schools, both Public and Private, throughout Ireland. Due to Horizon’s unrivalled experience and success in providing summer camps in some of Ireland’s most prestigious schools, we are in the enviable position of being able to offer a wide choice of schools to prospective students. 


Students who book the Private School Option will stay in Residence in the Boarding School. Students who select the Public School Option will stay with local, carefully selected host families for the duration of their attendance at the school.

During their stay the Student will be immersed in the day to day curriculum of the school and sometimes at weekends and the Host Family will help facilitate this. All our Host Families are interviewed and trained by Horizon and have completed a Police Check procedure.
