"A huge thank you to you and Leanna and the rest of your team for a wonderful Spain Abroad semester!  Our son had a wonderful time and, as we hoped, the experience provided a much needed reset for him.  He seems more relaxed, confident, and adventurous than before he left.  Your program exemplifies everything a gap year experience should be and we are eternally grateful” - Parent

"I had an amazing time as a member of this program.  It provides an unforgettable experience for anyone looking to immerse themselves in Spanish culture and live independently in another country.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to travel abroad and make a lifetime of fun memories" - Student

Spain Abroad offers two tracks for 16-23 year olds.

In our LIFE COACHING track, students learn independent living skills while sharing an apartment with other students. This is an individualized track that offers mentoring and future planning.  Students learn Spanish, budgeting, cooking and explore their personal interests and areas of growth with activities and resume building opportunities as well as cultural and adventure excursions.

In our HOMESTAY IMMERSION track, students are welcomed into a local family while studying Spanish. All arrangements are made for you and the program includes cultural and adventure excursions, weekly group meetings, and classes on career and resume building, while experiencing the Spanish culture firsthand.

We are a family-owned business, with years of experience working with high school students and young adults in the fields of education, career exploration, mental health, life-coaching, and mentoring. We utilize our education, work experience, and passion for providing global awareness to deliver a program that will not just help prepare you for your future and help build your resume, but will also give you a life-changing experience while making memorable friendships.

We also offer a group abroad track for those interested in bringing a chaperoned group to Spain. Please contact us to create a personalized package for your needs.

"I really enjoyed this program! Estepona is a phenomenal town with great people, so much to do, and you can walk anywhere you need to go. The day trips were amazing! Most of the towns we went to I had never seen anything like it. Also the food was awesome. I am absolutely going to go back to Spain!  10/10 recommend!"
