St Giles San Francisco

Our partner school is ideally located on Market Street in the heart of San Francisco, only a short hop from Union Square.

Our partner school is ideally located on Market Street in the heart of San Francisco, only a short hop from Union Square. The language school building is well-equipped and provides all the facilities necessary to enable you to study in the best conditions: 34 modern, spacious and bright classrooms, a language lab with a DVD library, two computer labs with quick and free internet access. 


The student café and a comfortable lounge await you during breaks, to relax or chat with your new friends. Located close to the school, the Yerba Buena Gardens are a real oasis of peace in the heart of the city. It is ideal for relaxing after a day of courses or a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, unless you’d rather discover the hills of San Francisco in one of the famous cable cars that can be caught directly opposite the school.

The school gives you the opportunity to discover not only the city of San Francisco, but also to visit other destinations such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Santa Cruz, Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley and its vineyards or Lake Tahoe for skiing in winter. San Francisco remains an excellent base from which to explore California and its magnificent Pacific coast.

At St Giles we offer a complete package ensuring you have everything you need for a successful and enjoyable period of study. We offer you a wide choice of accommodation options for all needs and budgets, transfers to and from our centres, social activities and comprehensive insurance.

We have welfare officers in every centre to ensure your safety and well-being, while our Academic Counsellors will help you with your studies and can advise you on your future career or educational life.


We also have dedicated Child Protection Officers who are responsible for students under the age of 18. You will also receive a 24-hour telephone number for use outside school hours.


Social Programme: Our social and excursion programmes are designed to help you have fun, make friends, practise your English, and explore the city and country you are living in. At each year-round school there is an Activity Organiser who will arrange afternoon, evening and weekend activities.
