Exciting news: Our Pennsylvania school is moving from Lock Haven to a beautiful new location at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia!
Philadelphia is a major international city with a rich history extending back to America’s founding. Throughout the city you’ll find reminders of America’s past, from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell to many sites related to Benjamin Franklin, one of the city’s most famous residents. Today Philadelphia is a vigorous, modern metropolis with a full range of attractions from world-class museums to major sports teams to diverse ethnic neighborhoods.
You can also easily explore nearby Manhattan, since New York City is just 90 minutes away. And don’t forget Philadelphia’s famous contributions to cuisine, like the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and the soft pretzel!
FLS is located on the campus of Chestnut Hill College in northwest Philadelphia’s quaint Chestnut Hill neighborhood. A private Catholic school, the college was founded in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The beautiful campus includes striking Gothic structures, like St. Joseph Hall, a chapel, tennis courts, a soccer field and a pool house.
Students may choose to stay in the attractive dormitories on campus or live with a welcoming local host family.
Of course, students will enjoy the benefi ts of every FLS International center including excellent curriculum and teachers, a busy activity calendar and access to all campus facilities!
From computer labs with the latest models to snack-and-coffee bars that will keep our students going late into the night, Chestnut Hill College’s facilities are fully equipped to enhance campus life for each member of our community. In addition, many of the facilities are linked together from building to building, providing students, faculty and staff with quick and easy access.
