Pinkerton Academy students not only learn the mechanics of another language but also explore the cultures, histories and traditions of those who speak it. Working with the faculty, students experience different ways of thinking, living, and communicating.
Pinkerton offers courses in Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Latin, and American Sign Language.
Pinkerton offers students a variety of study and travel opportunities outside the classroom, including trips to China, France, Canada, Germany, Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico, Greece and Italy. In addition, students are given opportunities for immersion locally through workshops and social events organized by faculty.
