Upper School

Foreign Language

The Foreign Language Certificate recognizes students who demonstrate a commitment to becoming citizens of the world by concentrating their academic program in Foreign Language. These students go above and beyond the graduation requirements in this subject area by studying two languages simultaneously during their Upper School years.


Certificate Components

There are two required components to the Foreign Language Certificate program. Students must formally study two languages beyond the beginning level. Students may earn Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Summa Cum Laude certificates depending on the number of foreign language credits. Additionally, students must complete an experience that extends the language study to other areas of the student’s life in order to demonstrate the relevance of language acquisition in today’s global society.

Formal Language Study

Two of the following languages may be chosen: Ancient Greek, Arabic, Chinese, French, Latin, Russian or Spanish.
