Learn Spanish in one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain . . . ¡Granada! Explore the narrow, cobblestoned streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaycin, wander the passageways of the Alhambra, or enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies and experience the passion of a flamenco performance. As an add-on to your Spanish classes you can choose to take the SAT/ACT Preparation Course or the College Application Preparation Course. Classes are taught by the same team as those held in Houston.

All-in-One SAT/ACT Prep Courses
Our unique course covers both exams in the same class. This course is special because we are private tutors who also have classroom experience. We know how to teach each student as an individual, and even in a class of several students, we can identify strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas of improvement.
All-in-One College Application Courses
Students come away from our intensive application courses having written the major components of their college applications – leading to a much less stressful senior year. Students work with experienced and creative admissions consultants to create truly memorable, truly compelling college applications. Students complete the key written components of their college applications – resume and three essays – with expert guidance in a fun, inspiring setting- Spain! Here’s a short video about the program:
