France

The French possess an enduring pride in their traditions, philosophies, and attitudes, and for good reason.

Delectable cuisine, renowned art and literature, stunning landscapes, and a beautiful language are just a few things that come to mind when thinking about French culture. Today, France maintains its cultural stronghold as the most visited country in the world and creates an ideal backdrop for high school students wishing to fill their summer with an exploration of fine food, art, language, history, and culture. Drawing on this legacy of fine culture, our summer programs in France balance learning and exploration with opportunities for leisure and summer fun. From the glamour of the French Rivera to the fragrant lavender fields of Provence, teens can enhance their language skills and explore new interests as they fully immerse in this rich culture for an unforgettable summer à la française!
