About Abbey Road Programs:

Founded by Stanford alumni in 2000, Abbey Road’s study abroad summer programs continue to deliver excellence. Our mission is to provide quality academic summer programs that facilitate cross-cultural understanding, personal growth and academic enrichment.

Abbey Road was created through a collaboration of the best young professionals and educators from top schools and esteemed institutions. Our curriculum developers and staff come from places such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Duke, Cambridge, La Sorbonne, the United Nations, the World Bank, the European Parliament and the State Department  …..  just to name a few.

Sophisticated Travel Experiences for High School Students:

- We offer our students the sophisticated experience of a savvy traveler, rather than that of a tourist shuffling among the masses. Our academic credentials, experience and dedication to our students give us an unchallenged position in the fields of study abroad programs and pre-college preparation.  

- Because of our connections to each host community, comfortable group sizes and flexible scheduling, our students are able to experience true culture and language immersion abroad and exceptional pre-college preparation in the U.S.

- It is impossible not to get caught up in the beauty of Florence and Tuscany. For this reason and so many more this incredible city serves as the starting point and foundation of our Italian residential immersion summer program.

Residential Italian Cultural Immersion Program for Students in Grades 9-12:

- 4 weeks Italian Cultural Studies in Florence (3.5 weeks) and Rome (4 days)
Our comprehensive and intensive Italian cultural immersion program course a three and a half week residential living experience in Florence with a four day travel excursion to Rome for a truly unforgettable summer abroad.

Course Majors include:
- Italian Language; Drawing; Oil Painting; Fashion Design; Art History & Architecture; Digital Photography

Electives include:
- Italian Conversation, Italian Cinema, Tuscan Cuisine, Digital Photography, Drawing, Oil Painting, Fashion Design, Art History & Architecture, OSA Soccer Academy

Residential Life:

- The residential living component of the Florence-Rome program is one of the greatest pre-college preparation and culturally immersive experiences out there. Daily tasks like making your bed, washing your clothes and picking up after yourself will help you learn to be a considerate, self-aware cohabiter.

- Weekly family-style cooking in small groups and a historic building (yes, some apartments even have frescos on the ceiling) mean you can actually be inspired just by walking through your front door. To top everything off you cannot find a better location.

- Our residence is a short walk from the Piazza del Duomo, the heart and soul of Florence, and the bustling outdoor markets of San Lorenzo. In short, you are far enough away from the city’s main piazzas to maintain a tranquil nighttime slumber but close enough so that you can make the most of your daily free time with friends.
