Since the first transatlantic journey in 1964, SYA has inspired over 7,500 young men and women to become global thinkers. You experienced what has been considered the gold standard in high school study abroad since our inception a half century ago. You, like many other alumni, had an extraordinary adventure which helped you develop cross-cultural understanding, empathy and the confidence to navigate the unfamiliar.

Now, we are focused on SYA’s role in the future of global education. We need you, our alumni body representing diverse fields, backgrounds, and demographics, to lead the way. You exemplify the qualities of a global thinker that SYA fosters in its students. We encourage you to continue making an impact in the world and at SYA.

You are SYA. Stay connected. Attend an event. Submit news for Class Notes. Become a volunteer. Promote SYA. And make SYA a philanthropic priority. Your school’s future depends on its alumni.

On the Support pages you’ll find our featured alumni profiles, event schedule, alumni award nomination forms, information on volunteer opportunities, giving and more.
