The goal of the world languages program is to prepare students to be linguistically and culturally competent in languages other than English. The ability to communicate in a culturally appropriate manner with speakers of other languages is a key to success in our increasingly diverse global community. Instruction is offered in modern and classical languages, along with American Sign Language.

- Students must be prepared to face the challenges of an increasingly pluralistic society.
- In order to ensure our own future, we must be able to communicate with the world around us.
