“Surrounded by the food, the scents, the beautiful language, the rainbow of tapestries and paintings, and the ancient stone city of Petra, I fell in love with the region. The natural beauty of the Middle East and Jordan, combined with the amazing staff of teachers and advisors that really becomes a second family, makes this program a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

This program combines substantive reading and coursework with firsthand experience in an Arab country. Students live and study at King's Academy in Manja, Jordan, and travel extensively throughout Jordan with a variety of local guides and organizations. Participants emerge with a working knowledge of the history and cultures of the modern Arab world, phrases in conversational Arabic, valuable skills applicable in any academic context, and unforgettable experiences of life in Jordan.
