Study Away


Nearly every year a handful of Belmont Hill students elect to spend a summer, semester or full-year off-campus exploring new cultures, disciplines, or social environments.

Belmont Hill supports these ventures in a variety of ways.  We offer several on-campus opportunities for students to learn about study away programs, through assemblies with program staff as well as from Belmont Hill students who have returned from spending time off-campus.  Departing students work closely with their advisors, division heads, and Dean of Studies to craft their schedules and prepare for a seamless academic transition back to Belmont Hill. The College Guidance office provides protocols to ensure that time away from campus enhances students’ college prospects.
Between 2017-2019 Belmont Hill students participated in the following off-campus semester and year-long programs:
Alzar School (Idaho, Peru)
The School for Ethics & Global Leadership (SEGL)
CITYTerm (New York City) (Washington, DC)
