J-Term Programs for Fairfield & Non Fairfield

IMPORTANT: Due to the reduced Winter Break, Fairfield will NOT be offering January 2023 (J-Term Programs) at this time.

J-Term Programs at our Centers are a terrific way to add a short-term study abroad experience to your academic plan!  These programs are well-suited for those students who wish to advance their language skills, who are athletes, or for those who don't have a semester available to be abroad, and for you!
