At SYA China, you'll find yourself engaged in a way that you've never been before.
Located on the campus of Beijing Normal University High School #2, SYA China opened its doors in 1994 and was the first high school study abroad program in the People's Republic of China with government permission to place students in host families for the entire academic year. Beijing provides SYA students with limitless opportunities for learning all aspects of China's history and culture, just outside the school gates.
Countless pagodas, temples and imperial parks exist peacefully alongside modern high-rises and bustling markets. SYA China's curriculum and travel schedule enable students to explore the many realities present in the largest country in Asia.
Whether venturing to the open markets and bartering with vendors, teaching English to youngsters at a nearby orphanage, reciting Buddhist chants with monks in a local temple, or spending several weeks traversing the countryside and staying in rustic villages, SYA China awakens the adventurous soul.
