THINK ONE HIGH SCHOOLER CAN CHANGE THE WORLD?
SEGL is a study-away program for high school juniors and seniors.
Our mission is to provide intellectually motivated high school juniors (and the occasional senior) who represent the diversity of the United States with the best possible opportunity to shape themselves into ethical leaders who create positive change in our world.
Our students come from across the country and globe. They have beliefs spanning left, right, and center. They are tomorrow's politicians and poets, physicians and physicists.
They all belong at SEGL.
Spend a term in South Africa, located on the African Leadership Academy (ALA) campus. Joburg is Africa’s economic power plant: dozens of major companies are headquartered here. Along with your ALA peers, have an SEGL experience centered on entrepreneurship and African affairs.
Spend a term in the United Kingdom! SEGL in London is housed in the Bloomsbury neighborhood of central London, near the British Museum. With a special emphasis on business, arts, and history, London is the classroom to study ethics and leadership, economics and finance, drama and fine arts, and more.
Spend a term in our nation’s capital! Washington, DC is not only the center of our political universe; it is also full of passionate personalities, fascinating neighborhoods, and vibrant art. It is the perfect place to discover who you are and who you want to be, all while learning about international relations, politics, and activism.
