Student in France for year


Amanda deBerardinis, a student at The Bishop’s School, is attending School Year Abroad’s (SYA) school in Rennes, France, for the 2009-10 school year. A University City resident, she is studying with approximately 60 other students in an academically rigorous high school and second-language immersion program while living with a French host family.

SYA is a consortium of 37 U.S. independent schools led by Phillips Academy (Mass.), Phillips Exeter Academy (N.H.), and St. Paul’s School (N.H.) dedicated to offering students from any accredited U.S. independent or public high school the opportunity to spend the school year immersed in another culture.
