Fuel your Summer!

We offer personalized adventures for students seeking a summer experience like no other. Our extensive range of programs encourages independence and friendship, striking the perfect balance between learning, exploration, and fun. We’re proud of our reputation for providing a high level of attention and care, for being pioneers in our field, and for finding exciting new ways to make each student’s summer unforgettable.

Students who join our challenging pre-college programs, or our authentic language and cultural immersion programs, develop essential skills that put them ahead of the game. All of our programs are designed to broaden academic and personal horizons, and we work thoughtfully to create opportunities for a truly diverse student population. We have been offering the best, most comprehensive student adventures since 1984, and we still know what students want from their summers today.

On a Mission

In 1984, Marcia Evans founded Academic Study Associates with the goal of facilitating global understanding for high school students through unique educational summer programs. Today, our name has changed, but our mission has stayed the same. We continue to offer programs that emphasize cultural engagement, travel, exploration, recreation, language study, academic enrichment, social engagement, responsibility, independence and personal growth.

A Taste of College

Our programs prepare students for a successful high school to college transition. Our students learn to balance academic social and extracurricular commitments. They enter college better prepared to make the most of their experience.

Beyond Tourism

For 30 years, Summerfuel has offered high school students a unique way of visiting Europe. Rather than a whirlwind visit to major tourist destinations, we give students the chance to settle into one country and study its culture, language, people and traditions as an insider – not as a tourist.

Once you go, you know

We constantly receive letters, calls and emails from parents, students and teachers telling us about the positive effect of Summerfuel programs. Students return home having improved language skills, discovered new interests, with new friends, more confidence, a greater awareness of themselves and the world around them. In short, better prepared for college and better prepared for life.
