The Rome Start Program is a unique opportunity for high school students seeking to complete their first year of college at Loyola's John Felice Rome Center in Rome, Italy. After the first year, students transition to Chicago to complete the last three years of their undergraduate degree. Rome Start welcomes high school students graduating from secondary schools outside of the U.S. and is a highly selective program open to students completing high school in the U.S. who demonstrate international experience and a global interest.
