School Year Abroad (SYA) offers year-long high school study abroad opportunities in China, France, Italy, and Spain. Students live with host families and attend classes at schools specifically designed for the American high school student. In addition to the three founding charter schools, SYA’s association includes a consortium of 42 top U.S. independent high schools who have demonstrated a strong commitment to world language instruction and global education.

Mo designed the online pre-departure training for new students, as well as weekly activities to support the existing advisory program. Programming was designed for students attending all four country sites, and incorporated diversity & inclusion and intercultural competence theory.
