Bloomington, IN, December 04, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Teen Global Education, an educational organization
specializing in month-long (July), boutique, culturally-immersive, summer enrichment programs for
teenagers in Europe, is pleased to announce the opening of a second program in Girona, Spain: SGE
Summer School (www.sgesummerschool.com).
Like its sibling program, GGE Summer School in Greifswald, Germany, SGE Summer School differs
from all other European programs for teens because it offers: 1) freshman-level academic courses taught
by professors at American colleges, 2) custom-designed internships appropriate to a student's interests
and language ability, and 3) a "college boot camp" with a highly successful "college admissions guru."
Teen Global Education programs are the creation of Dr. Michelle Facos, a tenured professor at Indiana
University-Bloomington, internationally-renowned scholar and award-winning pedagogue who is directly
involved in all facets of the programs. The best-rounded and most comprehensive summer programs
available, they promote cultural understanding and self-assurance in navigating foreign settings, rigorous
academics, and an opportunity to become part of the local community through internships. In addition,
Teen Global Education programs offer a broad range of events and activities, including lectures by local
professors and professionals, concerts and performances, and visits to nearby historical, natural, and
cultural landmarks.
SGE Summer School students, like their GGE Summer School peers, will make friends with local teens
because they are included in group activities, thereby fostering organic friendships. Students opting out of
an internship select from a broad palette of artistic and physical activities, from drawing, cooking, and
digital photography to yoga, tennis, and sailing. Faculty, who inspire and challenge students, are carefully
selected for their effective teaching, experience in the field, and innovative scholarship; they become
integral and beloved parts of the SGE Summer School community. Girona was chosen as the Spanish
location because, like Greifswald, it is an idyllic medieval university town with welcoming inhabitants
and beautiful surroundings.
“We are delighted to have Alba Codina, a Girona University professor, as our program administrator and
John Winter, former Director of Residential Life at the Cranbrook Schools in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan,
as our Associate Dean and Director of Residential Life. SGE Summer School participants will walk in the
footsteps of Picasso and Salvador Dali, visit Barcelona and Montserrat, camp and hike in Andorra, and
become acquainted with the singular culture of Spain's magnificent Costa Brava,” says Teen Global
Education founder and dean Michelle Facos. “In 2016, our GGE Summer School in Germany drew
students from Cupertino to Cape Town, and we look forward to welcoming a similarly diverse and
accomplished group of students to Girona in 2017.”
