World Languages Department Philosophy Statement

The World Language Department strives to create global citizens. Students will develop an ability to function in a foreign culture by employing and understanding effective communication through the spoken and written word.

Classical languages seek to introduce students to the languages and civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome and to provide students with the tools they need to read Latin with comprehension.

Through the study of a world or a classical language, its history and culture, students develop a world view through which they gain a fuller perspective of themselves and their global community.

The language department guides students to heighten awareness of the richness that exits in diversity. By promoting exchanges and service to others students develop a sense of justice and respect for all cultures.
