Academics at SYA France
SYA France supports high school students on their journey to becoming fluent in French through the study — in French — of the language, culture and politics of France. Whether students are exploring an outdoor farmers' market, dining at a neighborhood bistro or attending the latest French play, they are immersed in French culture the majority of every day.
All students are required to take six courses, including French language, English, math and Experiential French. Students participating in the semester program will receive .5 credits per course while yearlong students will receive 1 credit per course.
Sample courses can be viewed below. The course catalog for the 2021-2022 academic year is not yet available. Click here to view last year's course catalog. You will also note that many of our courses are denoted as "FW" which means that the course involves a fieldwork element designed to challenge students in the broader community.
