High School Study Abroad

Teen Summer Camps, Volunteer, Language Study, Adventure Travel and Gap Programs

Often, the best place for students to start planning for ways to study abroad and develop cultural awareness is through their high school. Foreign language teachers and guidance counselors can provide information about summer, short- and long-term international programs. Some of the choices include high school programs providing language, study, culture, or volunteering experiences. There are also scores of exciting teen summer camps and teen travel programs offering everything from adventures worldwide to language immersion learning.

Options for gap year or pre-college students who want to take a summer, semester, or a year before college for meaningful travel, volunteer, or study abroad include a variety of programs run by both established and dynamic new organizations who understand the interests and needs of the current generation. Many of the most prestigious colleges and college study abroad programs now prefer high school graduates with experience abroad as proven preparation for success in later education at their home school and overseas.

You can find all the best options for teen and high school programs abroad of all types right here.
