You will be living in Provence not as a tourist, but as a local– attending spectacular summer festivals, visiting Van Gogh’s city of Arles, and shopping at colorful open-air markets. You will visit the Camargue nature preserve and sun bathe along the shores of the Mediterranean. At the end of the day, you can linger at an open-air café or venture home to hang out with new friends.
Your stay in Provence finds you at a fully-equipped country estate, complete with an outdoor swimming pool. Our teachers will personally introduce you to France’s language, culture, history and art. Living in an international environment with students from all over the world, you will develop skills which will prepare you for life in the modern global marketplace, where cultural competence is paramount.

We reserve our longer trips, such as to a nature reserve, for a full day. A full day excursion will begin after an early breakfast and end in the evening. We do not stay overnight on any of these excursions.
The dates of the 2018 Summer Program in Provence are: June 30 – July 28.
“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; Boca Raton, Florida
