Foreign Language Studies at Orinda Academy

Private School Orinda

At Orinda Academy, our talented private school educators and challenging academic curriculum thoroughly prepare our students for college and the college admissions process. Our electives courses and strong foreign language requirements will make your child much more attractive to college counselors in the admissions department of your child’s college of choice.

We offer four to five years of both French and Spanish education for students in grades 8 through 12. The first two years of any foreign language class is spent building vocabulary, grammar, and conversational skills. Students also learn about the culture and history of French and Spanish countries. Upper-level language courses focus on reading classic and modern literature in the literature’s original language. Students will write more complex academic essays, and give longer presentations in the language that they are learning.

If you’re interested in giving your child a comprehensive private school education in California, come see us at Orinda Academy. We tailor all of our academic programs to each child’s learning style, and offer college prep help and access to college admissions events and college counselors.
