Language and Culture Studies

Students in the Middle School begin with an introduction to language and language study through a full year of Latin and Classical Studies in grade 6 and Spanish language study in grade 7. Beginning in eighth grade, students choose between Latin and Spanish as their primary course of language study and commit to two years of the same language. The middle school years are an excellent time to introduce a second language to young people, and SAS is committed to making language available to students in the middle school in a way that is both meaningful and fun.
