Irish Boarding Schools

Irish Boarding Schools

There are more than 700 secondary schools in Ireland, and most of them are catholic schools while the rest of others are Christian and other religious schools. Irish secondary schools are mostly owned by private organisations meanwhile all the teachers are paid by the government. Even though Ireland has a lot of good secondary schools to provide high-quality education, most of them would not take international students because of protection reasons. The only schools that can provide education to international students are boarding schools. In Ireland, there are 25 boarding schools across different counties. All of the boarding schools have great academic results and they provide a wide range of extracurricular activities and good facilities.
