SYA Italy opened its program in Viterbo, Italy in 2001. SYA is a rigorous academic program that includes the intensive study of Italian and Latin, history, art history, mathematics and English. All but the Italian language courses are taught in English. All students live with an Italian host family for the full academic year.
At SYA, students wander the cobblestones streets of a medieval city, share delicious dinners with an Italian family, and observe firsthand the juxtaposition of past and present in an academic setting.
