Irish Life Experience, a nearly month-long study abroad program for high schoolers, is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
This year, the summer study abroad program will celebrate its 10th anniversary.
 
Irish Life Experience is a nearly month-long program that immerses high schoolers in all Ireland has to offer through classes, workshops and tours. Founded in 2008, the program has touched the lives of more than 500 young adults during its history.
 
"I know firsthand what a study abroad program can do for a high school student," said Taryn Harrison, President and Founder of Irish Life Experience. "A program like this changed my life. I saw the world from a wider perspective, and it set me on a course for my career.
 
"To be able to help shape the identities of other students year after year - now for a decade - is incredible."
 
The Irish Life Experience program introduces students to all aspects of Irish culture, from Irish social and political history and Irish literature to the Irish language, dance and sport. Tenon Tours, a U.S. tour operator specializing in travel to the British Isles and Italy, is a partner. The program also works with various Irish companies to provide authentic cultural experiences.
 
Throughout the entire trip, a team of executives, managers, teachers and counselors accompany students, ensuring the highest level of education and safety.
 
Students and parents alike rave about the life-changing experience, from the depth of the connections forged on the trip to the expanded worldview upon returning home.
 
Registration is now open for the Irish Life Experience. The 2019 trip will take place from June 27 to July 21. Tuition is $5,100 if paid before Jan. 1 and $5,500 after, which includes roundtrip airfare from Boston to Ireland, accommodations, meals, transportation, staff supervision and instruction, tours and admissions.
