Literary Madrid - Summer 2022!

On-Campus Enrollment is Now Open!


Madrid, Spain

One & Two Week Programs for students in Grades 9-12

July 3 - July 9

July 10 - July 16

Great Books is excited to head to Madrid again in 2022! Limited spots available!

Join us in Madrid for a Great Books experience like no other!  New for this summer, we're bringing Great Books to the beautiful capital city and vibrant cultural center of Madrid.

Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and history of Spain and experience la  vida española with us this summer.  Led by Great Books faculty currently living in Spain, this unique program offers the ability for students to dive into Spanish culture whether they speak Spanish or don't know a word.  All reading and discussion is in English, but those wishing to hone their Spanish skills will have ample opportunity to practice if they choose.

What is the Program Like?

Our program in Spain is limited to no more than 30 students and is open only to high school participants (ages 14 to 18). The program is staffed by seasoned GBSP personnel as well as faculty, guests, and staff drawn from University of Oxford and Yale.

GBSP will be hosted by Colegio Mayor Chaminade on the campus of Complutense University of Madrid, one of the most prominent universities in Spain. Students will reside in private rooms in dormitories alongside staff chaperones and most classes, electives, and meals will be on campus.   

During our stay in Madrid, we will spend our mornings taking part in Shared Inquiry seminars and discussion.  Our curriculum is rich with British literature, including selections from Shakespeare, and we will bring in select Spanish texts (in translation) to celebrate our locale. Select afternoons will include walking tours, a stop at the historic Plaza Mayor, museum visits, and cultural experiences like flamenco and tapas!

Tuition and Fees

  • One-week Tuition: $2995
  • Two-week Tuition: $6190

Materials & Events fees of $425 for one week and $725 for two. All on-campus programs have a registration fee of $250.
