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 schools while a mix of other independent and public schools comprise the rest.
