Beyond the two years of language required for graduation, students are encouraged to continue their study for the third year (levels 3 and 3 honors) and the fourth year (level 4 and Advanced Placement - not available for ASL) and obtain the Seal of Biliteracy.
Outside the classroom, language students can participate in clubs such as the ASL club, the Spanish Honor Society, and the French Honor Society and engage in service projects such as Cartas con Amor (Letters with Heart).
Most years, trips abroad offer students the opportunity to use their language skills in France and Spain, and immerse themselves in the cultures with peers and locals. We are currently planning our next trip abroad for the spring of 2021!
This year, our department is also thrilled to begin a new virtual cultural exchange with students in Sénégal through the World Wise School initiative, a global connections program of the Peace Corps.
