Spring at SYA

Your Impact: School Trips

Paris. Sicily. Andalucía. Galicia. Valencia.

Students have been in transit again this spring! They continue to witness the concepts, places and people learned in the classroom come to life in front of them as they explore various regions of their host country.

From learning about éco-construction methods being tested worldwide at le Pavillon de l’Arsenal in Paris to partaking in a calçotada in Valencia to performing Greek tragedies at a theater in Sicily, students engaged deeply with the local cultures and history, taking opportunities to showcase the skills and knowledge they learned in the classroom along the way.

LEARN more about how campuses moved in the spring.


News Highlights

Sophie Boynton, SYA France


Sophie Boynton began her career with SYA France in 1999 as the administrative assistant at our campus in Rennes.  Sophie makes our campus, Villa Alvarez, a warm and welcoming “home” to all who enter the doors at 5, allée Ste Marie. The school should really be moved one street over to be on allée Ste Sophie. Why? Because our Sophie is truly a saint. At school, Sophie is the gatekeeper for many different things. She's our Mary Poppins and a wealth of knowledge about anything pertaining to our day-to-day operation..

The year was 1998 when the Board of Trustees authorized preliminary site and market research for a campus in Italy. Viterbo was selected as the host city and the iconic green doors were opened for the 2001–2002 school year.
