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.
