Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Take the plunge and study abroad in Chile with API!
Santiago bustles with activity and is home to more than 1/3 of Chile’s population. Serving as the country’s political, cultural, and economic center, it is an exciting and engaging city, where students can enjoy museums, historic sites, shopping centers, and a politically active populace. API students will take classes where they can study with Chilean students in subjects such as business, education, psychology, and more!
Built upon dozens of steep hillsides overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Valparaíso boasts a labyrinth of streets and cobblestone alleyways, embodying a rich architectural and cultural legacy. Nicknamed “The Jewel of the Pacific”, Valparaíso was declared a UNESCO world heritage site based upon its improvised urban design and unique architecture. Offering strikingly beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean from the top of its numerous hills, it is reminiscent of San Francisco. API students take classes at Pontifícia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso and is highly regarded as one of the best in Chile.
Neighboring Valparaíso, Viña del Mar is built on the land of two former estates and is known for its beautiful beaches. The city of Viña del Mar is often called the “Garden City” but is also known as a university town. It is a safe and relaxed city where visiting international students at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez can take Spanish language courses in combination with Chilean culture courses, or directly enroll in a variety of classes with local students.
Chile’s tremendous range covers a hugely diverse array of landscapes, from the desolate moonscape of Chile’s Atacama Desert, to the fertile vineyards of the Central Valley, to the lush rainforests of the Lake District, down to the magnificent glaciers and peaks of Patagonia — not to mention more than 3,000 miles of coastline and Easter Island. It’s truly mind-boggling to think of how many different experiences one can have in this diverse South American nation. API offers programs in three magnificent study abroad destinations in Chile – Santiago, Valparaíso and Viña del Mar.
