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 consisted 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 attended 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 hosted by the Lorenzo De Medici University and grew each year to 35 students in 2019 hosted by the Florence University of the Arts.
As of this past summer, a total of 95 High School of Fashion Industries students have attended the Florence Program.

‘This was the first time EVER that I didn’t feel the need to pick up my phone, only to take pictures and to turn 18 in Italy?! Never forget that.’
‘To study culinary in Italy?! That’s any promising chef’s dream.’
