Students will gather a greater understanding and mastery of the English language, writing, and literary classics. Students studying foreign languages will have plenty of resources to learn the language and practice it with chances for immersion programs and international travel.
We teach mastering the English language by improving the use of proper grammar and expansion of vocabulary.

Students have the chance to work with local newspapers on projects to practice their skills.
In our writing course, students have the chance to write different types of genre including research papers, editorial, copywriting, poetry, and song lyrics. Student writings are published both on the student’s individual website as well as in a printed journal which is used to showcase their progress and work.
The literature program enhances literacy as students read a selection of the classics, fiction, and non-fiction books. Discussions between students are done in class and through the online class forum to dive into main topics, themes, and questions posed. Instructors work one-on-one with students who may be struggling with reading classics in school and assist in understanding the writings and working their way through the text.
We also offer various foreign languages including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, Hebrew, Mandarin, Marathi, and Swahili. Students have the chance to learn individually one-on-one with native speakers, in small group settings to practice conversation, and by using interactive media in the language lab to practice grammar and vocabulary. Travel abroad programs are offered yearly for students to visit countries and experience the culture. The exchange student program works in tandem with local school districts to offer international immersion.
