SYA Virtual Admissions Zone

Looking Beyond COVID-19

Now more than ever, we recognize the value of a global perspective. In these extraordinary times we at SYA are heartened by the strength of our global community of former and current students, parents, staff and faculty. We hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you into the SYA family, and plan to operate beginning in January 2021. Visit our safety page to read more about our commitment to student safety.

Accepting applications for Spring 2021!

During these uncertain times, we realize that it is no longer possible to run our yearlong program for the 2020-2021 academic year. However, as an alternative,  we're pleased to offer a spring semester program in France, Italy or Spain starting in early January. This program will have all the same elements of our yearlong program- living with a host family, educational travel and an experimental curriculum, but all within a shorter experience. Explore our programs, read student stories, watch a webinar, or schedule an info session with a member of our Admissions team to learn more!


2021 Spring Semester Dates:
Depart: January 7, 2021
Return: May 27, 2021

Tuition: $32,900
Eligible students can apply for financial aid.
All scholarships have been awarded.



 "Studying with SYA is an opportunity like no other.
If you haven’t yet applied, apply! If you haven’t yet accepted, accept! You’d much rather be at an SYA reunion in Europe than be lamenting that you missed an opportunity to do something truly incredible."
August C. - SYA Semester, Italy 2019
