ISPY — International Summer Programs for Youth — offers English-language learning programs ranging from two to six weeks, for youth ages 8 – 18. These intense, challenging and rewarding English language programs are designed to give beginner to advanced level English learners a well-rounded academic and cultural learning experience. There are five distinct levels: Junior, Beginner, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate, and Advanced. The curriculum and range of difficulty vary according to the level. All levels spend the morning in structured classes, with afternoon electives such as Technology, Drama, Music, Art, or Sports. All of our programs incorporate an experiential learning component, which allows students to apply their skills in an authentic situation. English language students apply their skills through the global responsibility program, which takes them through a curriculum of leadership skills, exploration of global issues, and involves participating in local service initiatives linked to leadership skill development outcomes
