Study Abroad

Summer is the perfect time to travel and explore.

Our programs in France, Morocco, and Spain extend an invitation for students to immerse themselves in the language, daily routines, and cultural habits of another country. Your time abroad with Choate teachers, native of the host country and from our Wallingford campus, is designed to build independence, self-reliance, and adaptability through exposure to new ways of living and thinking.
