Founded by Stanford University alumni and operated by experienced professionals from other top schools such as Harvard, UCLA, and NYU, Abbey Road Programs brings together a staff team with more than fifteen years of practice in the fields of international student exchange, travel, and education.

At Abbey Road, we take great pride in our faculty and staff. Our full-time and summer staff directors, coordinators, instructors and resident advisors are experienced, dedicated, and caring individuals who are carefully selected and screened. Many of our summer staff and faculty are talented university professors and instructors, high school teachers, college administrators, graduate students and highly qualified college graduates. We maintain a minimum ratio of 1 staff member for every 8 students.

Housing: Homestay, Residence, Dorm, Hotel

Levels: Grades 9-12


Our teaching method is founded on active, experiential learning in a non-traditional educational environment. Our courses, covering a wide range of academic subjects, are designed to be both educational and fun, emphasizing student motivation and interaction, as well as a diversity of teaching methods and educational media.

We believe that students should be a part of what they are learning as they are learning, and not in a simulated environment or a traditional classroom. We take students out of the classroom so that they can experience the subject of their study first hand, making the educational process more engaging. As an Abbey Road student, you will practice your French at the local fruit market, discuss Italian fashion in an outdoor café, comment on Michelangelo's David in the Galleria dell'Accademia, or improve your Spanish with your new friends over tapas.
