Academics

USA Youth Tours is dedicated to providing students an enriching academic experience. In partnership with our faculty from Yavapai College, our talented staff that has worked with our organization for many years is looking forward to working alongside your student campers.

During the three week program, students will be immersed in English language and culture, helping to prepare them for future pursuits where these skills are highly desirable. TOEFL preparation and testing is an advanced course option, along with a host of other interests such as computer science, robotics and other STEM related programs.
