Since 1964, School Year Abroad has sent high school juniors and seniors to study abroad in distinctive cities and towns throughout Europe and Asia where their safety and security is a priority. Widely considered the 'gold standard' of high school study abroad programs, SYA's rigorous academic curriculum, paired with complementary educational travel and varied extracurricular activities, ensure students are in an optimal position to return to their home schools or proceed to college.
At SYA, you have the advantage of earning
high school credit for your year studying abroad while learning from exceptional U.S. independent school and locally-hired faculty. We offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses and standardized testing, college counseling and progress and end-of-year reports for parents and home schools to ensure that you are on track when you return home.
Unlike other high school study abroad programs, School Year Abroad independently operates its own schools, so instead of enrolling in a local high school, you'll be learning from hand-selected local and U.S. faculty who serve as advisors to SYA students as they navigate their new environment.
In SYA's unique intellectual environment, learning takes place in the classroom and in the larger global community. Each SYA school providese a unique educational environment that brings together the high educational standards of top U.S. prep schools with the excitement of experience-based learning.
