Member Schools

In addition to the three founding charter schools, SYA's association includes a consortium of top U.S. independent high schools who have demonstrated a strong commitment to world language instruction and global education. About 40 percent of our student body comes from our member high schools while a mix of other independent and public high schools comprise the rest. Below is a list of the SYA coordinator contacts with their associated high school:
