Summer English Academy
Summer English Academy (SEA) is CCI Greenheart's premier ESL program exclusively for teenager's ages 14-18 years old. This three-week course is led by certified ESL teachers who offer creative language lessons with a focus on conversational skills and provide English speaking opportunities at all times: meals, activities and class. Each day students participate in recreational activities on and off campus and excursions each weekend. Participants have the opportunity to live and study with other international teens on beautiful boarding school campus, study English, explore New York City and participate in fun, cultural afternoon activities.
CCI Greenheart, a division of Greenheart International, organizes high school exchange, short-term homestays, ESL camps, intern and trainee, summer work travel programs in the U.S. and through the Greenheart Travel division, study, teach, work, volunteer, and language programs in over 30 countries around the world.
ESL Program Introduction
SEA is located in New York’s Hudson River Valley. The programs include 16 hours of English class per week, one half-day activity per week and weekend excursions. Students will explore the many destinations in the valley region including a tour of a private university, a day at a water park and a weekend in New York City.
Service learning is central to our mission—SEA provides one English class centered on the topic of community service to learn about the impact volunteer work can have on a community. Students are then given the opportunity to put what they learned into action by participating in a Greenheart volunteer service project.
Classes are designed to be interactive and fun. Students move around the classroom engaging in creative lessons with their peers. Some classes are taught outside the classroom to demonstrate real world scenarios and allow students to enjoy the outdoors. Our teachers have lived abroad and speak a variety of languages, all have experience teaching teens and are certified ESL teachers.
