Welcome to Estepona, Spain
Estepona lies on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain, just below Marbella. A palm-lined promenade, the Paseo Marítimo, runs next to the Playa de la Rada beach with restaurants along the walkway. The whitewashed old town is a pedestrian village lined with colorful flower-filled pots cared for by the city. In the center lies the the flower-filled square of Plaza de las Flores. Just a fifteen minute walk down the promenade leads you to a marina filled with sailboats and multi-ethnic restaurants. A delightful town full of Spanish charm, known as the
"garden of the Costa del Sol."
In our CULTURAL IMMERSION PROGRAM in Estepona, students stay in a homestay with local families while studying Spanish. All arrangements are made for you and the program includes excursions, weekly group meetings, and classes on career and resume building, while experiencing the Spanish culture firsthand.
In our EXPLORATORY PROGRAM, students learn independent living skills while sharing an apartment with three other students. This is a more individualized program that offers life coaching and mentoring while students earn college credit that can lead to an Associates Degree. (Classes are taught in English.) This is a wonderful chance to explore the Spanish language and culture but also explore yourself, your goals and how to prepare for your future.
