Exploratory Program

Our Exploratory Program is an exciting, hands-on, personalized, cohort-style growth experience. Think of it as a home away from home where you get the comfort and security of a family but the freedom and support to learn, stretch yourself, explore, and develop new independent skills you wouldn't have access to otherwise. We want you to explore your interests while building your resume. 

The Exploratory Program can be for 1 semester to 2 years, offering you the opportunity to earn up to an entire transferrable Associate's Degree and/or Spanish language classes while building your resume in Estepona, Spain. 

Come take a glimpse into our program in Estepona. Our students will get to experience this incredible city filled with amazing people, activities, and culture. It truly is “one of a kind”.
