Study Abroad Teen Trips & Pre-College Teen Trips

Study Abroad & Pre-College Teen Trips for Middle & High School Students

Study abroad teen trips, often called pre-college or academic enrichment programs, give middle and high school students the opportunity to complete coursework at schools, colleges, and universities throughout the world. Studying abroad gives students an authentic taste of the cultures or subjects they're learning about by supplementing coursework with field trips, food tastings, sightseeing, and more. For American students, Europe offers attractive destinations like Paris, France, London, England, Seville, Spain, Rome, Italy, and more. Latin America offers opportunities in Mexico, Brazil, Panama, and more. For international families, many programs are available at U.S. colleges and universities in cities like New York, Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Accommodations may include camping, hotel, youth hostel, and home stays. Best of all, many study abroad and pre-college teen trips give students the opportunity to earn academic and community service credit for high school or college.

Ages, Dates, Trip Length, and Tuition Rates of Study Abroad Teen Trips

Most study abroad teen trips offer departure dates in June, July, and August. Study abroad programs can be as short as 14 days and as long as 40 days (about 2 weeks to 6 weeks in length). While each trip varies, most trips welcome travelers between the ages of 12 and 18.

Study abroad teen tours can range in tuition from $3,000 to $10,000. In most cases, airfare and insurance is not included in the tuition price. It's important to check with each tour provider to see if there are additional costs involved.

Choosing the Best Study Abroad Teen Trip

There are many important factors to consider when choosing a summer study abroad program. What are the accommodations like - dorms, hotels, hostels, or home stays? What cities, landmarks, and sights are seen? Which schools, college, and universities do students study at? Do travelers have to meet certain academic prerequisites to apply? Do travelers earn academic credit? What are the trip provider's emergency procedures? What costs are not included in the tuition price? What kind of certifications do teaching instructors have?
