Foreign Language (French and Spanish)

Once students reach the 8th grade in ACPS, they are allowed to take either French or Spanish. Students taking a foreign language at either middle school will receive high school credit upon successful completion of the course.

The Virginia Board of Education recently adopted the revised World Language Standards of Learning. These new standards replace the current "Foreign Language Standards" and are scheduled for a phased implementation beginning in the fall of 2021. Members of the school community may view these new standards on the Virginia Department of Education website or for further information can click on the following link  Revised World Language Standards of Learning (PDF).
