There are opportunities to learn a world language in Arlington Public Schools from Kindergarten through Twelfth grade.
School Board Value:
"All APS students should be proficient in at least two languages upon graduation and should have access to world language proficiency programs regardless of school of attendance."

Announcements and Resources:
**APS has been awarded a STARTALK grant for a Summer Program in Arabic and Chinese, to be held July 8th-26th. This is a free program for secondary students currently in grades 6-11. Registration is open March 7th-April 5th and is on a first-come-first-served basis. Please click on the STARTALK link on the left for more information and for a pre-registration form.
We regret to inform the public that the elementary STARTALK program for current 4th and 5th graders was not funded. As a result, we will not offer an elementary Chinese and Arabic program during the summer of 2013.
