Dates and cost

LITA’s high school summer programs are held from June through July. For Summer 2019, we currently have two trips to choose from:

North Group 1 - June 17th - July 23rd, 2019
South Group - June 24th - July 30th, 2019

Departure airport is JFK

Cost is all inclusive (excluding airfare): $8,500




Students who apply to LITA must be finishing 9th through 11th grades in high school and have a minimum of two years of Spanish study.

LITA students have an ability to commit to being a positive member of a small group through new, and at times challenging, cultural and linguistic experiences. They have a true sense of adventure, a keen interest in language acquisition, and a willingness to be outside of their comfort zones in an immersive environment.


Financial Aid

We recognize that the cost of a five-week summer program can be prohibitive to many students and families, and LITA is committed to helping make our summer programs accessible for all motivated Spanish students, regardless of cost. We encourage all applicants in need of financial assistance to complete our online application for financial aid as well as seek out outside scholarship awards, grants and other financial aid opportunities.

LITA's application for financial aid as well as a list of fundraising resources can be accessed via the individual login portal.
