Our mission is to provide quality academic summer programs that facilitate cross-cultural understanding, personal growth and academic enrichment. Abbey Road was created through a collaboration of the best young professionals and educators from top schools and esteemed institutions. Our curriculum developers and staff come from places such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, Cambridge, La Sorbonne, the United Nations, the World Bank, the European Parliament and the State Department  …..  just to name a few.

For almost 20 years we have shared life-changing experiences with thousands of students from across the United States and the entire world. Our students pursued various academic interests and artistic talents, learned foreign languages and discovered new cultures, prepared for the college years and made many lifelong friendships. Our programs are designed to give them unique, individual experiences, let them learn in a fun, interactive manner, and above all, give each and every one of our students our personal attention and assure their safety.

Our summer programs in Europe and North America will take you on an exciting adventure! You will see some of the most beautiful places in the world, experience new cultures and gain knowledge to expand your horizons and prepare you for your upcoming college years.

Our summer programs are open to American and international high school students who have a genuine interest in exploring foreign languages, cultures and other academic subjects such as studio art, art history, literature, film, environmental studies, pre-college and test prep programs, and more. We are looking for open-minded young people who want to experience a new way of life, and who are mature enough to do it in a safe and responsible manner. Our students are academically motivated, and they have a broad range of interests in the arts, athletics, social activities, and travel. Students ages 14-18 are eligible, from mature eighth graders to graduating high school seniors.

Whether you are learning art history in Florence, the Flamenco in Cádiz, or proudly perfecting your French conversational skills, you will enjoy countless moments that will create memories to last a lifetime. Our emphasis on personal attention to detail, coupled with an unyielding commitment to excellence above all else, is what gives Abbey Road Programs an advantage. We go to great lengths to provide an authentic and deep learning experience, along with fun and lasting friendships. Our alumni stay in touch with each other, and with us, year after year.
