World Language Department
SCSD offers World Language/Foreign/LOTE instruction in French and Spanish at the Junior-Senior High School. Our program begins the study of foreign languages in the 8th grade. Some students are placed in a Level 1 Accelerated course but the majority of students will be enrolled in course 1A. These students complete their Checkpoint A / Level 1 program with a 1B class in 9th grade. Level 1 success fulfills the minimum World Language proficiency for graduation from any NYS High School. Successful completion of Levels 2 and 3 fulfills the requirement to receive a Regents with Advanced Designation diploma upon graduation.
We also offer Spanish 4 & Spanish 5 for college credit through our affiliation with SUNY Albany (French 4 will be offered again in the 21-22 school year.) Our University in High School offerings allow students to earn up to 8 Spanish college credits (4 college credit for French) before graduating from high school.
