Ashley Hall's European Campus: Palazzo Leti
After a long day of cultural and language immersion, returning to a familiar home base is often the greatest wish for students and faculty studying in a foreign country. Ashley Hall has made that desire a reality with the launch of a new shared Italian campus in Charleston’s cultural sister city of Spoleto, Italy. Named the Palazzo Leti, the new campus provides Ashley Hall students, teachers, and alumnae with experiences that connect languages, the arts, and sciences against the backdrop of a historic center of creativity.
The Spoleto campus is part of a national initiative—spearheaded and led by Ashley Hall and two other independent schools, The Culver Academies and Rabun Gap Nacoochee School, under the umbrella of Spoleto Study Abroad—to fully utilize the Italian campus throughout the year for like-minded, independent schools. A restored 16th century property, the Palazzo Leti features study spaces, dorm rooms, and shared community areas, including a Renaissance garden overlooking the Spoleto valley. Trips will be planned for both students and adult members of the Ashley Hall community.
