About Us

Study Abroad 4711 is a study abroad provider that offers journeys for those interested in international travel and lifelong learners passionate about global education. We are located in Chesapeake, Virginia and Queens, New York, and we serve customers across the country from New York to California.

Our Founder and President started Study Abroad 4711 (SA 4711) shortly after she had the opportunity to study in Tokyo, Japan.

Today, we put our more than 15 years of experience to personally help other learners travel the world, break down barriers, and discover new and inspiring destinations. Every student that studies abroad through our journey is encouraged to connect with our founder to learn more, and she makes herself available via appointment.

Mission Statement

To infuse affordability with full intercultural immersion in the ever-evolving world of international education for all students, giving them the opportunity to fathom their journeys as they embark into a globalized workforce.

Become a Global Citizen by Studying Abroad

Intercultural curiosity is very common for all walks of life. So ask yourself, does your mind drift often and become curious about the way other people live around the world? Do you think about what type of foods people eat or what type of music they listen to? At Study Abroad 4711 in Queens, NY, we encourage you to think outside the box by imagining yourself on one of our study abroad programs.

Begin to Fathom Here

We encourage students to use their financial aid for long-term study abroad programs and to invest excess financial aid refunds into short-term programs to study and intern abroad. Our belief is that if students receive financial aid, they can afford to study abroad with us.

Affordable Journeys

Students with limited financial means may believe they will not be able to participate in study abroad programs, however Study Abroad 4711 makes the journey affordable. Our study opportunities are listed by cost rather than location. Prices vary from $4,000 to $7,000, and $11,000. With proof of financial aid eligibility or with a certified letter of financial support from a parent, guardian, or financial institution, students can also select a $15,000 option.

Discover Your Future Abroad

We don’t want to let a lack of funds stop anyone from taking the journey of a lifetime. The college years are the perfect time to have new, exciting experiences. Whether you choose long- or short-term studies abroad, your financial aid refund could be enough to cover the cost, so that none of the financial responsibility will fall on you.

Study Abroad 4711 provides travel options for all ages. Whether you are a ninth grader or a senior citizen, our international education and career opportunities are ideal for anyone that craves the adventure of a lifetime.

Thank you for having me, I’m very proud of you and the things you’re doing…it’s life changing for our generation and the future generations. So much to offer. If I could do it all over again, right now, I would probably do my whole entire college experience through Study Abroad 4711.


StudyAbroad4711 was a life-changing experience for me. I was able to go to both Costa Rica and Panama! The food was remarkable, the culture was amazing, and I never wanted to leave. I recommend this to everyone, but especially students who just finished there last year of college and looking for a reset.

Good afternoon Ms. Parker, thank you so much for everything you did to assist Reagan in her travels. She is enjoying her experience to the fullest with no regrets. She told me that you are the advisor she needed because you see her potentials and encourages her. Thanks for being a blessing in her life.

Mrs. Doralea Taylor

Thank you so much for organizing the  study abroad programs. I wanted to travel abroad and study language, but I didn’t know if I could do it. Your program made all the difference and now I have the confidence to tackle any challenge. If anyone is considering studying abroad, Study Abroad 4711 is the best. 

Jalen Rosen

Study Abroad 4711 has given me one of the greatest gifts ever. The ability to travel comfortably without any worries. I’ve been making so many memories here in Costa Rica. Can’t wait for when I go to Thailand!
