Language & Cultural Immersion

Language & Cultural Immersion

For over thirty years, Summerfuel has offered high school students a unique way of visiting Europe. Rather than a whirlwind visit to major tourist destinations, we give students the chance to settle into one country and study its culture, language, people and traditions as an insider, rather than as a tourist.

Summerfuel study abroad programs strive to facilitate global understanding for high school students by offering programs that emphasize: cultural engagement, travel, exploration, recreation, language study, academic enrichment, social engagement, responsibility, independence and personal growth.
