About Program

CYA is now offering two opportunities for Gap Year students: those who are passionate about antiquity will benefit from the “Archaeological Field Work: Excavation, Workshops and Digital Technologies” whereas the “Understanding Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of Greece” is an excellent choice for students interested in learning more about social issues abroad.

A program ideal for high school graduates (over 18 years old) who want to take a break before college/university in order to engage in educational, cultural, and physical activities on subjects of interest to them – an exceptional way to enrich academic and life experiences.

Trips to the island of Aegina, the island of Crete, Delphi and the Peloponnese will allow the broadening of perspective and expansion of worldview.

This program is no longer offered. View more programs from CYA (College Year in Athens).
