World Languages

Kennedy Catholic offers six different opportunities for students to engage in another language. These languages include American Sign Language (ASL), French, Latin, Mandarin, and Spanish, as well as Heritage Spanish. 

Students participating in the language courses work to obtain a high degree of oral/expressive, written, and reading/receptive proficiency at the conclusion of their study.

Along with the study of the student's chosen language, students will also be exposed to the history, geography, and culture of the language being studied. 

While Washington State does not currently require language study for graduation, Kennedy Catholic reminds students that most colleges and universities will require a minimum of two years of study in the same language, with more competitive colleges and universities often requiring three or four years of study in a single language.
