What is School Year Abroad?

School Year Abroad (SYA) is a nonprofit organization focused on providing immersive study abroad programs to high school students. With nearly 8,500 alumni since 1964, SYA is a school fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Founded upon a yearlong study abroad model, SYA now operates three campuses in France, Italy and Spain, and has expanded to provide a wide array of programs designed to develop skills for an increasingly interdependent world. SYA's yearlong program remains the only secondary-level option allowing students to live with a host family for an entire academic year while earning U.S. graduation credits and preparing for admission to selective U.S. colleges and universities.
