High School Abroad in Spain
It’s not a year in your life, is a life in a year
Our High School Abroad program in Spain is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a unique country and culture. It offers a perfect location, a climate full of sunshine, a fascinating culture, and world-famous gastronomy, as well as the fact that Spanish people are cheerful and friendly and always open to foreign visitors.
As a high school student studying abroad, you will live like any other Spanish student, making friends and sharing your time with your host family.
You will not find a better way to learn and improve your Spanish than being a foreign high school student in Spain.
When you consider a high school study abroad program it is important to choose the destination carefully. You must take into account different aspects about the chosen country, such as its educational methods, particular features of the area and, of course, the nature of its people.
With this in mind, at Seville Abroad, first and foremost we are concerned with the safety of our students and we believe that Spain is the most suitable destination for any foreign student’s first trip abroad.
As a local agency, we are very flexible when it comes to respecting students’ preferred school and host family, as well as any extracurricular activities they may be interested in (e.g. sports, music classes, Spanish lessons, Flamenco dance, photography, and so on).
At Seville Abroad, we know how hard it is for parents to deal with their children being away and not being directly involved in their activities, so we also focus on providing parents with all the support and information they need. The line of communication is always open, even before the student’s experience abroad begins. Parents can rest assured that their child is safe and taken care of while they’re away.
Spanish private high schools offer you a very varied curriculum and high quality teaching.
You can also participate in multiple school and extracurricular activities (music, theater, sports, Spanish dance, photography)
The Spanish cuisine is extremely diverse and ranges from snacks (tapas) to generous portions of fresh regional.

The Spanish high schools offer you a very varied curriculum and high quality teaching. Classes are very enjoyable, since they generally combine theory and practice. In addition to regular classes, you can also participate in multiple school and extracurricular activities (music, theater, sports, Spanish dance, photography, communication workshops, etc.).
At your high school, you will be just like any other Spanish student, with the same rights and responsibilities. However, you will also receive the necessary assistance to ensure you adapt to your new school and its educational system as quickly as possible.
Spanish students are very open and are happy to share their classrooms with other international students. As soon as you arrive, they will begin to ask you all kinds of questions about your country, your family, your friends and your customs. Rest assured that within a few weeks, you will be fully integrated.
Why a Spanish local agency?
The most important thing when sending children to a High school study abroad program is to be sure that they will be cared for and receive personalized treatment for as long as they are away from home, just as you would look after anyone who came to stay with you.
Most of the major agencies which organize study abroad are located in your own country, which we see as a disadvantage, since during the development of the program, students will be in the hands of intermediary agents, with whom they may or may not have a close relationship, depending on their situation.
Seville Abroad works as a community based on closeness and trust.
Dealing directly with our agency in the destination country from the beginning of the process will provide you with a personalized treatment without intermediaries. You can talk directly to the coordinator responsible for your child, arrange meetings and have overall control at all times.
As a local agency, we know the schools, principals and teachers very well. Most staff has their own children at these schools, so the academic and personal monitoring of the students is guaranteed.
We know the host families personally and we have regular contact with them. We know a great deal about the neighborhoods where students stay, the cultural activities of the city, and everything related to your children’s life during their stay in Spain.
what they’re saying
Pepa conveyed trust and security to us from the initial contact, and this is why we chose her company, discarding other perhaps better-known options. And we were not wrong. They do not devote themselves simply to search for a school and host family, but they are present in countless details that arise in day-to-day life (e.g. search for extracurricular activities, feedback with the school, search for excursions/walks, follow-up of the evolution of the student, etc.). We believe that a word that could define them is “presence”.
They have a special ability to detect problems regarding the adaptation of a student to a new culture. Specifically, in the case of my son Arnaud, who is very shy and had never been away from home before, he was continuously encouraged and accompanied by his tutor during his stay (thanks Patricia!); in addition to the emotional support he received from his Spanish host family.
We felt that Andrea was being permanently looked after. There was constant communication with us throughout the whole program, responding to any of our requests, concerns or doubts. She was supported since her arrival until her last course days in Spain, including her farewell party, which was unforgettable.
