CELTIC IRISH AMERICAN ACADEMY

Offering you a unique, transformational experience that adds significant long-term value to your personal development and career outcomes is the core of the Celtic Irish American Academy (CIAA) summer program.

Celtic Irish American Academy is an international summer school for American high school students. The 2018 summer school runs from Saturday July 7th to Friday July 20th. The summer school is based in Galway City, recently voted the world's friendliest city, home of the Claddagh ring, and regarded as the cultural capital, on the west coast of Ireland. Our mission is to provide you  with an adventurous, fun and unique insight to your Irish heritage.

Students engage in an intellectually stimulating and deeply enriching exploration of their Irish heritage and its intimate bond with the United States. We offer an exciting combination of tours, classes, sports and volunteering. From hiking in the Wild Atlantic Way, to strolling down the cobblestone streets, to learning traditional Irish music and Gaelic language, there is an adventurous program in store for you!
