Language Preparation Program


A five-week academic program for Middle and Upper School students who want to improve their language competency or learn a new language in preparation for entering high school. These rigorous introductory level offerings in French, Spanish, Mandarin and Latin help to prepare students to successfully enter level 2 of language studies.

Rigorous Language Instruction


Our small student-teacher ratio, immersive environment and rigorous and creative hands-on pedagogy allow students to develop a balanced command of all four language skills (speaking, listening, writing and reading) and a solid grammatical foundation critical to written and oral communication. 

Inclusive and Results-Oriented Program


We are committed to supporting a diversity of learners. Each day is structured with both traditional language drills and more customized creative activities that simulate daily life situations. Students develop skills and strategies to grow and thrive as independent learners. A certification of completion will be awarded along with recommendations to best prepare for placement tests in the fall.
