Why We Love FYSAE

"I would not be the confident and cultured person I am today if not for the people I met and the experiences I had on FYSAE."

- Nick Shiavo '22

I learned how to navigate a large city, and I traveled to places that I never would have dreamed of visiting. FYSAE was a leap into the deep end, and it encouraged me to step outside the box and delve into new cultures. I would not trade my experience for the world.

- Priya Tarpley '22 (above)



Build community by living in apartment-style with other FYSAE students at Princess Elizabeth House.



Use your scholarships and financial aid to cover FYSAE tuition and housing costs, the same as a semester on the Glenside campus.
