Academic Year Abroad, or
Now is the time to start planning.
in High Schools & Middle Schools
(Public & Private)
– Spain – France – Germany – Italy – Portugal –
– Quebec – Argentina – China – Japan* –
England (attend an English High School, not a language program)
In addition to the obvious
Foreign Language and Cultural advantages for
Middle School & High School Students
Academic Year Abroad Programs
are also an excellent opportunity for
GAP Year students
to both acquire fluency in another language… and, in many cases,
finish the foreign language requirement
and / or start another language in college .
Even students who have already been accepted at college,
might want to consider this
and postpone entering college by one or two semesters.
There are programs in different countries
Spain – France – Germany – Italy – Portugal
– China – Japan – Argentina
available to students.
*** To Teachers:
Please encourage your students to do this.
Because the dates, ages, application dates, costs, etc.
are so varied, to properly answer requests
for information, we need to know more
about the student:
When he/she will attend?
Date of Birth?
Language / Country of Interest?
Length of Stay?
Any Specific Course or Program that must be included?
Are Grades Required (actual grades or PF)?
*** To Students:
To avoid being disappointed in the end,
consult with your school Guidance Department, parents, or other authorized decision maker.
Find out if you will be allowed to go abroad.
What subjects you may be required to take.
What kind of grades or evaluations will be necessary.
If you need one or two classes to graduate,
You may be able to take them on-line,
So you can do an academic year or semester abroad
And graduate on time.
If you clear this in advance,
The application process will be easier…
Fewer frustrations & last minute disappointments.
