EF and Amerikanska Gymnasiet
During the summer vacation after Years 1 and 2 all Amerikanska Gymnasiet students have the opportunity to attend Summer Academy in the USA thanks to the established cooperation between Amerikanska Gymnasiet and EF. After the three semesters of the school year, students can choose a “fourth semester” in the USA as described below. Travel is financed through fundraising over the school year, where the goal for each class is both to learn how to organize fund-raising and as far as possible to finance the trip.
Every summer – California, Summer Academy three weeks

“I am proud of our collaboration that gives students an opportunity to turn dreams of international studies into reality. If we can plant a seed together that helps young people to define and to dare to follow their own path in life then together we will open up a world of endless opportunity. To do this together with an organization that shares EF Education’s entrepreneurial culture and ambition to prepare young people for an international world is of course extra rewarding.”
Erik Stenbäck, Country Manager, Nordics för EF
“We are very pleased and proud of this joint venture that means our students can practice languages in a unique and authentic environment that greatly facilitates learning.”
