2021 Spring SYA Semester Program
During these uncertain times, we recognize that studying abroad for the 2020-21 academic year is no longer possible due to a number of logistical and safety reasons. We want to ensure the best possible experience for our students which is why we are pleased to offer a 2021 spring semester option. SYA will not be offering any type of fall program, so students who opt to enroll for the spring semester will continue at their home schools for the first semester of the 2020-21 academic year.
Below are some answers to FAQs that you may have. If you cannot find an answer there, please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule an info session with a member of the admissions team.

Course of Study
SYA’s curriculum is our mission in action. Given the shorter time frame, our curriculum will reflect that and be a condensed version of the yearlong experience.
The semester will begin with a short immersion unit and conclude with a final project. Students will spend the majority of their time attending courses, for which they will be awarded three academic credits. Upon completion of the program, semester students will be awarded three academic credits. Students will earn .5 credit in each of six courses: Math, English, Language, Language and Culture in Context, and two electives. Available elective courses will be announced at a later date.
