AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMYStudy Abroad Studying Abroad Can Change the Way You See The World! American High School Academy’s Study Abroad Programs give you the opportunity to experience the world as your classroom. Rather than picking things up from books and the internet, personally navigating a new landscape will open your eyes to culture, history, a new language or even your heritage. Studying Abroad opens the door to personal growth and discovery too. As you learn to say ‘hello’ in a foreign language, make friends, and eat exciting new foods, it is bound to boost your confidence, teach you self-reliance and stretch the parameters of your comfort zone. WHO ARE STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS FOR? As a new college student, you want to venture out, build confidence, participate and learn by doing, seeing, and traveling. Maybe you want to study marine biology and rescue birds from oil spills but you live in a non-coastal state. Or maybe you are trying to understand history and archaeology from an urban jungle. Understanding new environments, languages, and cultures breeds an appreciation for what you have, or where you come from. It also opens your eyes to what is going on in the global landscape. Rather than studying words on a page, the element of participation, learning to say hello in a foreign language, or visiting heritage landmarks and museums might just stretch the parameters of your thinking. So for those of you who aspire to potentially open new avenues – academically and personally, call American High School Academy and see what the world has to offer. BENEFITS OF STUDY ABROAD Study Abroad Programs are for experiential education. Picture the world as your classroom with each destination a new interactive textbook where instead of reading, you are experiencing history, art, culture, fashion, food and the arts in real-time! Maybe you have already traveled overseas and had a taste of exploring a foreign city, a sandy beach, or a historical landmark. If you are looking another opportunity to travel and countries you want to learn more about and understand and connect with new people, then studying abroad is a great option.
