With programs in Spain, Costa Rica, France, Italy, Mexico and China, SPI Study Abroad offers an exciting and convenient way to choose a summer program abroad that works best for you. Fluency in a second language is growing more in importance every year, and there is no better way than going on a summer program abroad while still in high school. There’s simply no better way to learn another language than on an immersion program. And what’s better than spending an amazing summer abroad as a high school student?
SPI offers three program sites in Spain (Cadiz, Santander and San Sebastian), one in France (Biarritz), one in Italy (Siena), Mexico (Queretaro), Costa Rica, and China. With a variety of options, high school students can easily decipher which summer program abroad will best suit their needs and interests.
Studying abroad as a high school student is a life-enriching experience, and SPI’s summer programs abroad offer many benenfits. Not only can you earn college credit and develop fluency in a foreign language, but you grow as a person, becoming a more well-rounded, worldly individual.
High school students who have participated in an SPI summer program know first-hand how this experience changes lives. Conrad, a high school student from Newport Beach, California, who chose a program in Spain explains, “I’m glad that I chose SPI High School Study Abroad programs. I had the time of my life this summer, made friends that I know I’ll stay close with, and learned so much Spanish along the way. But what you really learn from going abroad is more than just the language and culture – you grow from the experience and learn more about who you are as a person.”
