High School Programs

Franklin also offers a summer program in Switzerland for high school students.

The program is designed for students who will enter their final year of school the following fall. The course takes place from July 11 - 26 and include a series of off-campus excursions in Switzerland.

The International Economics: Perspectives from Switzerland course will present students with the fundamentals of economics, including supply and demand, economic growth, inflation, unemployment, poverty, income inequality and globalization. Trips around Bellinzona, the Ticino valleys, and Poschiavo will allow students to learn about Switzerland’s economic history, its main sectors and the country’s position in the global economic scene.
