Welcome to Florence
Florence, Italy — the city that gave birth to the Renaissance and the Haute Couture — is unparalleled in its artistic and architectural masterpieces, luxury fashion houses, leadership in modern design, and meticulous craftsmanship.
The Florence Summer Study Abroad Program consists of a three and four-week immersion at the Florence University of the Arts, offering Fashion High students the privilege to gain academic enrichment in this magnificent city that is an international powerhouse of innovation and creativity. For the majority of our students, this is their first trip to Italy and their first experience traveling outside the United States.
Students attend courses in which they earn pre-college credits, while simultaneously gaining a global perspective through their exposure to the Italian language, culture, and the country’s surreal natural beauty.
Our satellite program launched in 2012 with five students, growing each year to 35 students in 2019. A total of 75 High School of Fashion Industries students have attended the Florence Program through the fundraising efforts and collaborative participation of Florence University of the Arts
