There is no better way to learn a language and culture than to live it.
Peddie students have the opportunity to participate in an immersion program through School Year Abroad, a nonprofit experience established in 1964.
Juniors and seniors attend a rigorous academic curriculum in the target language taught by native faculty members, and then participate in extra-curricular activities within their community. Living with a host family allows students to continue developing their language skills while building meaningful relationships. History and culture are brought to life through class and family fieldtrips. Students expand their worldview and learn history by living in it. They also become global citizens by connecting with the locals in a new culture.
Financial aid and scholarships are available.
Summer programs include a four week language and culture curriculum with one week of travel.
