SYA Summer Spain is a 5-week program for students who are dedicated to improving their language proficiency.
At SYA Spain is a study abroad program for high school students that will take you deep into the study of Spanish language and culture. While all classes are taught in Spanish except English and math, we assure you that a wide range of language learners are successful at SYA due to our fully immersive program. Your home base, Zaragoza, is Spain’s fifth-largest city, located halfway between Madrid and Barcelona. Relatively unspoiled by tourism, it is an ideal location for immersing yourself in the local community. Each experience you have — whether chatting with your host family, rowing on the Ebro or painting in a nearby studio — will reinforce what you’re learning at school and teach you more about this influential language and culture than you could ever learn from a book. Beyond the city, you’ll attend class in some pretty spectacular locations, from the canyons of the Sierra de Guara to the halls of the famous Museo Nacional del Prado.
