High School Study Abroad Programs

Summer High School Study Abroad Programs

Immersive, four-week summer high school study abroad programs for rising 9th-12th grade students.

Our summer high school study abroad programs in Beijing, China; Granada, Spain; Salamanca, Spain; Florence, Italy and Nantes, France provide motivated teens with the opportunity to accelerate their language skills, immerse themselves in a new culture and be exposed to a unique life experience they likely wouldn’t have on U.S. soil. Students return home from their study abroad experience more globally aware, independent and with a new perspective, prepared for life in college and beyond.

While the curriculum at our study abroad programs is similar to that of our U.S. immersion programs, studying abroad allows for more authentic cultural immersion, because students are interacting with native speakers in the local community and exploring cultural and historic sites around the city.

The Academy currently offers high school study abroad programs in Beijing, China; Granada, Spain; Salamanca, Spain; Florence, Italy; and Nantes, France. Our study abroad programs are open to rising 9th-12th graders with at least one year of language experience (rising 9th graders must have at least two years of Middle school lanugage study). To satisfy that prerequisite, some students will attend our U.S. immersion program their first summer and then study abroad their second summer as an extension of their language learning experience. On average, students gain a year’s worth of language acceleration during a summer of study abroad with the Academy.
