Upper School Languages

Nueva requires three years of language learning to graduate. However, many students choose to take more. Each of our language courses is also offered as an elective, allowing students who want to take multiple languages at once to do so.

Language Trips & Exchanges

Though not required, language immersion trips are available to Upper School students. During February break and spring break, teachers often lead students abroad to give them opportunities to further their learning while exploring a different part of the world.

The Upper School Japanese program has an exchange program with the Doshisha high school, offering Nueva students and their Japanese counterparts opportunities for homestays, classroom experiences, and cultural activities.

 Other optional language trips have included Taiwan, Cuba, and Colombia.
