World Language Department


The World Language curriculum serves a dual purpose of teaching a language while enhancing the student's knowledge of different cultures. Studying world languages in the context of a culture promotes understanding and tolerance.

The study of world languages, a minimum of two years, is required by virtually all colleges. Many require three years, while the most selective schools require four to five years. In some cases, colleges will waive their language requirement and/or grant advanced standing to students who have successfully completed advanced levels in high school. It is possible to complete a fifth year while still at CHS by beginning the language in the Middle School.
