Language Curriculum

The Language department offers in-depth study of the following languages and the cultures they represent: Italian, Latin, Mandarin Spanish and Spanish for Native and Heritage Speakers.
The modern language program aims to provide students with the ability to express themselves with reasonable fluency in oral and written expression, to understand thoroughly the spoken and written language, and to have a broad knowledge of the culture, history, politics and geography of the regions where the language is spoken. The study of Latin provides students with a strong classical base, a greater understanding of English vocabulary and a good knowledge of the classical writers who form the basis of our western culture.
