Your Impact: On the Road Again
Students venture off campus for authentic learning experiences
From the Medieval beauty of Marseille to the enchanting landscapes of the Andalucía region to the layered history of Sicily, SYA students have been on the road again this spring! As they venture away from each campus to explore surrounding towns and cities, students 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.
School trips are an essential part of the SYA experience and traveling with peers to another city or region brings history and culture to life. Your support of the SYA Fund makes these unforgettable moments possible.
Having a Field Day
SYA’s curriculum is our mission in action, and experiential fieldwork is at the heart of it all. When students are intentionally sent out of the classroom (and their comfort zone) and into the local community, they develop key skills and take increased ownership of their education. In addition to engaging with their host families, taking educational excursions and participating in extracurricular activities, fieldwork challenges students to push themselves further.
The SYA Rainbow
I knew travel with the school would be my only opportunity to see the region as it is far from Zaragoza and any trip there involves a tedious change of train in Madrid. However, when I stepped off the warm train, to-go coffee in hand, I was immediately drenched with cold, hard rain. I began to have some second guesses.
