The Abbey Experience

For nearly 1,000 years, the abbey of Pontlevoy has been a place of learning. Now it’s your turn.

You can explore Roman ruins a short bike ride away from your dorm. Tour the great castles of French kings—the chateaux whose opulence make the Loire Valley among the most popular tourist destinations on the planet.

You’ll also travel far from your new home as your semester develops. You’ll spend a week living and learning in Paris. Then you’ll follow a carefully planned journey, a personal “Vision Quest” that’s required of all Abbey students, which will give you the opportunity to independently explore Europe.
