Seattle Elite English is a distinguished preparatory program guaranteeing academic success and improvement in English language skills. SEE has a unique approach, customizing studies to the academic interests of the individual. SEE's energetic and enthusiastic atmosphere combined with lively exchanges between students who speak different languages, prepares the student for what lies ahead. SEE is a doorway to a larger world, where students step into wider social networks, greater cultural diversity and a more varied and informed world view.
SEE offers exclusive recreational activities for students. Private golf, swim and tennis lessons are available for interested students as well as horseback riding. Not only are we proud to have the Chambers Bay Golf course, home of the 2010 U.S. Amateur, as our local golf club, but we are equally pleased to have Canterwood, a beautiful country club with outstanding horse stables and sports facilities nearby for student use. Participation in athletics is another opportunity for our students to improve their communication skills, interact with accomplished American athletes, and increase competitive abilities.
Learning from Top Buisness Leaders
Opportunities to learn from global leaders in business and technology such as Microsoft, Nintendo, and Weyerhaeuser, for example, broaden the student's world view and promote entrepreneurial enterprise, business management and leadership, skills highly esteemed in today's markets.
Learning Through History
A colorful history of America, her beginnings and her people will be shared in the classroom. Understanding differences between cultures is a main objective as well as the participation and perspective of the enrolled student.
Learning Through Exploration
At SEE, part of the classroom experience happens outside the classroom. After each study period, students and teachers travel to points of interest and popular attractions. Exploring the Northwest provides students the opportunity to further develop their cross-cultural communications skills and build bridges for the future.
Total Tuition Amount
The total cost for SEE's three week program is $3000 USD. This includes ESL tuition / accommodation, and week day trips.
