Life in San Francisco
A.C.T. is located in the heart of bustling San Francisco, a major metropolitan area brimming with cultural vitality. We’ll be your home base, but the city will be your campus as you explore its wonders, discover its artistic treasures, and make it your own. Throughout the semester, students will live at the crossroads of the cultural life of San Francisco, a gateway to the greater Bay Area—and beyond.
On a day off, the City by the Bay offers students an extraordinary range of activities—most of which are accessible by public transportation. Take a hike in Muir Woods, go sailing on the Bay, catch a baseball game, hit a jazz club, bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, check out a pop-up restaurant, or soak up paintings in local artists’ open studios.
Tucked into the beautiful landscape of Northern California, the Bay Area also offers easy access to other unforgettable adventures. Spend a day exploring wine country in nearby Napa and Sonoma valleys, head down Highway 1 to view the dramatic coastal landscape near Big Sur, or check out the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, an oceanfront amusement park that has operated continuously since 1907.
