The Middle School foreign language program introduces students to languages and cultures (past and present) other than their own. Students develop an awareness of the significance of cultural diversity through their exploration of different languages and customs.
Grades 5 & 6 - Introduction to Language
Grades 7 & 8 - Foreign Languages
At the end of the 6th grade, students choose to study French, Latin, or Spanish for the next two years. Successful completion of a two-year middle school foreign language course is equivalent to one year of upper school foreign language study and allows qualified students to enroll in the second- level course (French II, Latin II, or Spanish II) for 9th grade.
