Tufts University Summit Program
July 1 – July 27, 2018
Established over 20 years ago, the Tufts University Summit Program invites high school students to develop a greater understanding of the global village they will call home. While improving their French language skills, students are introduced to the complex world of international politics and diplomacy. Their “Introduction to International Relations” and “French Language and Culture” classes, as well as field trips to local sites of historic importance and the natural beauty, help them make the most of this extraordinary region of the Alps and their time in Tufts Summit.
Students live with carefully selected host families in the Talloires area, most often with another student. What students learn first-hand about local daily life and French culture by sharing meals, conversations and outings with their host families, goes well beyond what can be learned from a textbook.
In Tufts Summit, students are encouraged to challenge their physical abilities, as well as their minds. Weekly outdoor activities, such as organized hikes into the local mountains, introduce students to another outstanding aspect of this alpine region — its extraordinary beauty and unique ecosystem.

Our student volunteers work among Blackfeet and Northern Cheyenne people on Montana Indian reservations and with indigenous Athabascans in Alaska, as well as abroad in South and Central America, the Caribbean and Cambodia. Programs are 12 days to four weeks long, and some sites include Spanish or French language immersion.
