The secondary world language program begins in grade 7. Over sixty percent of grade 7 and more than eighty percent of grade 8 students are currently enrolled in high school foreign language classes. Choices of languages include French, German, Latin, Spanish or Spanish for Fluent Speakers. Throughout high school, students may continue the study of these languages to the Advanced Placement Level or begin a three-year program of American Sign Language. Through these programs, the LCPS World Language and Culture Office provides the skills and preparation for students to have a broad understanding of the world, proficiency in other languages, and knowledge of other cultures.
