SYA is a nonprofit, study-abroad and home-stay program for American high school students. Established in 1964 by Phillips Academy Andover, St. Paul’s School, and Phillips Exeter Academy, SYA operates four independent American schools in China, France, Italy, and Spain. Students attend classes with up to sixty other American students for an entire academic year, live with a carefully selected local family, engage in an exciting curriculum that brings the language and history of Europe and Asia to life, and travel extensively throughout their host country.
