Why Europe?
Europe has many different areas and different languages, depending on the region. Students will have access to great activities from surfing at the sea to skiing in the Alps. They would also be able to enjoy shopping in culture-rich cities like Paris, London, or Milan. Although English is the primary language at most boarding schools in Europe, students will learn some basics of the local language at school and when they interact with the local community during various activities, whether shopping, exploring, or enjoying coffee with friends. Ultimately, the choice of the location will determine the languages students may be able to learn in addition to English.

North Europe has a colder climate and is the only area where the local language is English. Meanwhile, South Europe has a hot climate with beaches and sea. Central Europe also offers plenty of great activities in the mountains and lakes, with breathtaking landscapes, along with many cities that can be accessed easily by train.
