At SYA, we know that today's high school students must find ways to stand out in college application pools that are overflowing with qualified students.
College admissions officers at top universities and colleges attest to the SYA advantage. They know that successful SYA students are proven risk-takers who have responded well to the combined challenges of a rigorous academic program and life in a foreign culture. SYA is widely-known to produce exceptional students who are mature, informed, disciplined and well-adjusted to functioning away from home. Often times the college essay is based on the student's high school study abroad experience with SYA, and that essay makes all the difference.
