A program ideal for young students 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 your academic and life experiences.
College Year in Athens (CYA) is offering a Gap Year program to all those who are passionate about antiquity and health practices. By studying the lives of the ancients, we can further understand our own quest for health and wellness. This unique 10-week program explores the relationship between ancient Greek practices and modern-day health and wellness via hands-on, experiental learning. Through excavating in the Athenian seaside suburb of Voula, exploring modern Athens, and tending the Hippocrates Garden at the re-created Ancient House on the island of Kos, you gain an understanding of both the ancient and modern, based on personal experience. Greek language, culture, dance, and culinary workshops immerse you into Greek life, while trips to Delphi and the Peloponnese will allow you to broaden your perspective and expand your worldview.
