Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland

Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland (CTYI)

The Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland programme provides educational enrichment opportunities for secondary school students at or above the 95th percentile of ability. We also provide a CTYI programme for primary school students. For those not at or above 95th percentile of ability please see our secondary school programmes overview.

Summer CTYI Programme

This programme takes place in two separate three week session in June and July each year. We offer both Residential & Commuter Places. As well as having a strong academic structure, the CTYI summer programme for second level students has an extensive social programme. Outside of classes, students participate in sporting activities, day trips, discos, table quizzes and more. We employ a team of residential staff who coordinate the social activities and ensure that the students settle in, have a balanced timetable and an altogether enjoyable time.
