Discover Paris, France this Summer!

Discover the charm and magic of Paris this summer on an adventure of a lifetime! Be inspired by delicious food, fantastic art, amazing architecture, and the enduring splendor of this elegant city. Paris (“The City of Lights”) is renowned throughout the world as a tourist destination, and has captivated the hearts and minds of people for centuries! France and its capital city of Paris, hold a treasure trove of the world’s greatest monuments and museums, both artistic and experiential. Experience all that Paris has to offer, from the early Enlightenment era to modern day! This and much more await your exploration this summer. Of course, we will show you the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower, among others, but you will also be free (within our safety guidelines) to enjoy the city’s famous café scene and shopping districts with your good friends & classmates in tow. Who knows, you just might even take a dinner cruise on the river Seine!  Apply today to join us for a summer in Paris, a city of elegance, history and art.

You will live in upscale, comfortable student apartments or hotels, in the very center of the city. You’ll be just a short walk from the Eiffel Tour, the Champs Elysees, and the center of Paris! Our accomodations are rented and controlled by World Class Programs and you will only live with other World Class students. The accomodations have living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and 2-3 bedrooms. Each bedroom is shared by two to four students with staff members housed in a fully separate accomodation in the same location. Each program, if it is large enough, will also have a dedicated World Class Programs Security Officer staying in the building, who will be on-call to the needs of the students 24/7.

Every student on the program chooses two classes as their academic focus in Paris: a major focus and a minor focus. Major classes meet every morning, Monday through Friday, while minor classes meet three afternoons a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

One of the most valuable (and fun!) parts of our Paris Summer Program is the weekend day-trips to all of the most celebrated and “lesser known” cultural sites around France! While we extensively explore “The City of Lights” throughout the weekdays through our classes and activities, the program allows you to explore cities throughout France each week. From the hilly streets of Chartres to the quiet French countryside villas, you and your new friends will be able to explore some of the legendary sites that make France legendary.
