CYA Semester trips to Andros & Crete
Educational travel is key at CYA, and as such, we provide students with several opportunities to learn while traveling throughout Greece. Each semester all students participate in 3 academic field trips. There are also three other optional trips combining learning and travel. More on those later in the semester!

Filled with ruins, relics, and remnants of ancient and modern occupations, Crete is an island with a rich identity and proud people.
While sitting on the shoreline at Matala, Crete, a little girl of about 5 years old walked up next to me. Without a word, we smiled at each other and began playing in the sand together. After a few minutes, she promptly stood up and just as quickly as she sat down, she ran to join her sister out in the waves… What a thing to grow up in a place like Crete: surrounded by such naturally beautiful landscape and a people shaped by a complex history. Filled with ruins, relics, and remnants of ancient and modern occupations, Crete is an island with a rich identity and a proud people.
