School Year Abroad
Our membership in the School Year Abroad (SYA) program allows students to experience another language and culture through total immersion in France, Italy, or Spain. Participants live with host families and pursue a course of study in both English and the language of their host country under the guidance of SYA’s experienced teachers. SYA provides academic credit in addition to college testing and guidance, enabling students to graduate from Lawrenceville with their own class while helping to prepare them for selective colleges and universities. Students apply in their third or fourth form year to attend SYA in the fourth or fifth form year. The SYA year ends in time for fifth formers to return for their Lawrenceville graduation. Lawrenceville prefers students to attend the full year SYA program, but may allow semesters to be chosen.
