- About Us
Many of our students successfully take the AP exam after doing our program. Also, because of improved language skills, students often place into higher level Spanish classes upon their return.
Oftentimes, your high school may have a system in place by which you can either earn high school credit from our programs or you can place into a higher-level Spanish class upon your return. Please make sure you ask your Spanish teacher or guidance counselor about this to get the details.
Your school may not use this system often, or may never have had students study abroad so are not familiar with how to handle cases like this. Here are some examples of how some high school we work with handle high school credit:
Students are able to skip from Spanish 3 to Spanish 5 (AP) if they complete at least a 4 week Spanish immersion program over the summer. This allows juniors who otherwise could not do AP Spanish their senior year place into the AP class.
High school credit is granted as long as the transcript or certificate earned can be transcripted by a US university. We have an agreement with Jacksonville University who will provide this transcripting service.
There is no better way to prepare for the AP Spanish exam than by studying abroad the summer prior. Many students comment that they learned more in 3 weeks on their Sol Abroad program than in 3 years of Spanish class at their school. Summer after summer parents write us to let us know that their son or daughter scored a 5 on the AP exam thanks to the preparation during our program.
Not only will the experience with Sol Abroad prepare you to do well on the AP exam but for some students it allows them to place into the AP class when they would have otherwise been going into Spanish 4.
