One experiences the ephemeral realities around them, so vastly different from their home environments, and they wish to capture these rarities so as to keep them forever.

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!
