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 France, Italy, and Spain. Students attend classes with up to sixty other American students for one semester or an entire academic year, live with a carefully selected local family, engage in an exciting curriculum that brings the language and history of Europe to life, and travel extensively throughout their host country.

Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12.
