Each level of the modern language curricula at Hartley covers the six overlapping themes of Advanced Placement courses, which put the language and its culture into meaningful contexts.
Learn more about each course and credits in the World Languages Course Catalog.
The World Languages Department at Bishop Hartley believes in the importance of developing language proficiency and intercultural competence as we work to develop global citizens for the 21st Century. In support of that goal, Hartley offers instruction in Spanish, French, Italian, and Latin.
Students learn about the products, practices, and perspectives of the cultures where these languages are spoken and are evaluated on a proficiency model that requires them to grow in all areas of language acquisition. The focus is always on holistic proficiency rather than accumulating points and students must read, write, listen, and speak the language to be successful. Advanced Placement Courses are offered in all four languages to provide students the opportunity to earn college credit.
Students who have studied world languages prior to enrolling at Hartley will also have the opportunity to take a placement test to determine the most appropriate course in which to begin their studies with us.
Bishop Hartley offers related clubs including Diversity Club and Model United Nations. Learn more about these clubs.
