Discover Paris, France this Summer!

Discover the magic of Paris this summer on an adventure of a lifetime! You will be inspired by delicious food, fantastic art, amazing architecture, the list goes on and on. The beauty of Paris (“The City of Lights”) is renowned throughout the world and has captivated the hearts and minds of people for centuries! France and its cultural capital Paris, hold a treasure trove of the world’s greatest treasures, both artistic and experiential, 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, the Centre Pompidou, 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 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, in the very center of the city. You’ll be just a short walk from the Eiffel Tour, the Champs Elysees, and the heart and soul of Paris! Our apartments are rented and controlled by World Class Programs and you will only live with other World Class students. The apartments have living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and 2-3 bedrooms. Each bedroom is shared by two students with staff members housed in a separate apartment down the hall.
Every student on the program will choose two classes as their academic focus while living in France: a major and an elective. Major classes meet every morning, Monday through Friday, while electives meet three afternoons a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Electives and Workshops: Fine Art & Drawing, Philosophy, Photography, European History, Fashion Design, French language (beginner), French language (Advanced/Immersion), French Cuisine, Art History & Architecture.
In addition to showing you all the most celebrated and “lesser known” cultural sites in Paris, the program allows you to explore cities throughout France each week. From the beaches of Normandy to the quiet French countryside villas, you and your new friends will be able to explore some of the legendary sites that make France one of the most visited countries in all of Europe.
