Students Test Out of World Languages Credits
A new partnership is giving middle and high school students the ability to earn up to four years of world language credit towards graduation via a single assessment. Students can use earned credits to skip world language classes and begin in a higher level course, or they can skip taking a foreign language altogether if they receive at least two years of credit.
The next exam opportunity is in January. Interested students should contact their counselor to register by Nov. 30. LEARN MORE
