Language

We build on our diverse talents, perspectives and experiences to instill an enthusiasm for active language acquisition at all levels.

Our curriculum offers 25 courses in four foreign languages – Chinese, French, Latin and Spanish – and includes honors and advanced placement level classes. You'll develop your listening, speaking, reading and writing competencies while expanding your knowledge of other cultures.

There are opportunities for authentic learning experiences that will help you appreciate the connections between language and culture. Like developing a pen-pal relationship with a student from EFZ, our sister school in Shanghai, or working in our art studio as part of your Spanish cultural studies, or participating in our School Year Abroad (SYA) program in France, Spain, China or Italy. For complete cultural immersion, our Signature Experience in Language and our Signature Experience in Asian Studies allows you to explore other cultures through research and travel.
