"The classes are deeply engaging and so full of authentic trustworthy resources for further study. The teachers are all knowledgeable in their fields and the school promotes native Irish voices. The scholarship of the materials is second to none. This can be a true academic journey, or a fully spiritual experience, or both depending on how you approach it. The foundation classes are exceptional. The instructors do not hand you a pre packaged religious plan as so many do. They provide background and encouragement for personal study and spiritual growth. True mentorship."

"The standard of quality of instruction and overall mindset of the IPS is a breath of fresh air. There is real scholarship, experience, time, and devotion behind the teachers here, which can be so hard to find.
