Provence Program Overview


You will be living in Provence not as a tourist, but as a local, as you attend the spectacular summer festivals of Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, visit Van Gogh’s city of Arles, and shop at colorful open-air markets. You will visit the Camargue nature preserve and sun bathe along the beaches and shores of the azure Mediterranean. At the end of the day, you can linger at an open-air café or venture home to discuss the events of the day with new friends.

Your stay in Provence finds you at a fully equipped country estate with outdoor swimming pool. Our French teachers and staff will personally introduce you to France, its language, culture, history and art. Living in a truly international environment with students from all over the world, you will develop skills which will prepare you for life in the global marketplace of the 21st Century, where national borders and language cease to separate one people from another and where knowledge and understanding are the international currency.

“I just wanted to thank you for providing the girls with such an incredible summer. They absolutely loved Provence and loved the Program. It was the best summer they’ve ever had. What an enriching experience! The pictures were beautiful and next summer we want to travel there with them – they can’t say enough about how beautiful the entire trip was.” – Simone Spiegel, Boca Raton, Florida
