Our Mission:

In 1996, our programs were founded by language educators to provide students an authentic language and cultural immersion experience coupled with a cross-cultural leadership and community service component. Students develop global perspectives and leadership skills that give them a competitive advantage in college admissions and future endeavors.

Global Leadership & Volunteer Courses: 
In addition to language immersion, SPI programs include a leadership enrichment or community service component. Through engaging group discussions, team building excursions and community service projects, students foster personal growth, leadership skills and cultural awareness.

Language Courses for College Credit:
All SPI programs combine serious academics with interactive real world experiences. Students study at an accredited foreign university or language institute and receive an official transcript, which can be petitioned to receive college credit.

Language Immersion & Global Leadership Programs:

Our average program size is between 18-28 students, and we consistently maintain a 1 to 8 faculty/student ratio. Our student body is comprised of students from North America and other international schools. Courses and locations include:
