Students. Are. Back!
Students are back, and we are grateful! In these first weeks, it has been heartwarming to watch them exploring their communities and getting to know their teachers, host families and classmates through the new Immersion Unit. Enjoy these snapshots from the first weeks of September and read more about the start of the 2021-2022 school year in this issue of SYA Now.
FAST FIVE WITH FACULTY: ALESSANDRA TUZI
Alessandra Tuzi has been with SYA Italy since it first opened its iconic green door 20 years ago. When sharing the most gratifying part of her tenure with SYA, she said “I feel most successful when a student thanks me not only for teaching them the Italian language, but also for teaching them about life.”
Over $2 million in financial aid was awarded this year to nearly half of SYA students. Thank you to everyone who gave to The Campaign for SYA to ensure that every qualified student who applies for financial assistance receives it. Meet our five named scholars who are studying abroad this year.
