    Summer is an ideal time to study abroad in high school. Discover new people, places, and perspectives without missing out on your school year back home. Whether you want a two-week dive into sustainable development or a two-month language-learning program, you’ll find our summer study abroad options pack a lot into a little time.

    AFS exchange programs draw people from around the world who want to get to know people from other countries. Participants live with a host family while attending school or working within a community, gaining a fresh perspective on a different culture. By experiencing new cultures as outsiders, AFS Participants also gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their home cultures.
