Design an Education Itinerary That Works for You

Full Year | Semester | Trimester | Summer

Why take an MEI program?

Our programs are designed to offer students academic courses in ideal locations, matched with complementary subject matter, at the perfect time of year. Students have the opportunity to complete one or two academic courses during the summer session, and three or four academic courses during the spring or fall sessions. Students find that having completed academic courses prior to their senior year of high school improves their chances for early acceptance to university and prepares them for the rigors of life away from home. Departure dates accommodate regular school exam schedules and major holidays so that students can return home for winter break and/or graduation.

MEI International Academy
has been a trusted name in
study abroad programs
since 1997.

What better way to complete your high school career than to receive a REAL Education in the best places in the world?
