Summer Language Institute

Each summer, Nazareth hosts students from all over the world for a 3-week summer language program. Participants attend intensive English language courses, participate in traditional American cultural events, and visit Niagara Falls, New York City, local museums, as well as other historical landmarks. This program provides students the authentic opportunity of living and studying on a vibrant American campus. Through this experience, students not only enhance their language skills - they develop life-long friendships and a global perspective.

This program can also be designed to meet your needs as a business, government, or educational organization.
