SYA has pioneered study abroad programs for high school students ever since launching in 1964 and we believe that education needs to integrate real-world experiences into day-to-day school life. We challenge students to take education into their own hands all while learning a new language and integrating into a different culture. After SYA, students are ready to take on the world with confidence and a better global perspective. So why not study abroad in high school when there’s so much to gain and little to lose?
