International Activities

With a growing focus on global awareness and cultural competence for today’s and tomorrow’s students, P.K. Yonge offers numerous ways for students to engage in internationally focused activities.

Spanish Language + Culture | Rosa Rabell Scholarship

The Rosa Rabell Spanish Language Study Scholarship is named in honor of P.K. Yonge’s retired Spanish language teacher, the beloved Señora Rosa Rabell.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a deserving P.K. Yonge student to study the Spanish language and culture in Panama.  The student will stay with a host family and will participate in an immersion program to expand their knowledge of the Spanish language.

This experience includes airfare, transportation, lodging, regional-style meals, guided sightseeing, entrances to museums, and more. Students will be responsible for obtaining a passport, providing meal money including tips, and providing money for personal expenses.
