Some of the Best Quotes

“I had the most transformative best experience of my life in Greece, especially because of CYA. The trips, the fact that people truly are invested in you/ care about you, and the support that CYA offers makes the experience even greater.”


“What I learned outside of the classroom was most definitely the most valuable piece I took away from studying abroad. CYA does an incredible job at making sure you learn not only in the classroom but also outside of the classroom with the optional and required field trips that are offered.”


“My time in Athens and with CYA will be unforgettable. CYA is a small program with a huge heart. The academics they offer are grade A. The teachers are brilliant, the curriculum is rich, and the course material is challenging but appealing. “


“My expectations for coming to Athens were high, and CYA managed to exceed those expectations within the first week I was here. I feel so #blessed to be able to say that I was a part of the CYA experience.”


“CYA was the most amazing experience. They have the best professors that are brilliant, funny and kind as well as an incredibly supportive staff. The field trips we went on enabled me to see more of Greece than I thought I could and I am eternally grateful. Would recommend this program to anyone and everyone, 10/10!”
