Mission and Philosophy

The World Languages Department at Xavier College Preparatory strives to develop a well-rounded learner who can communicate effectively as a speaker of the target language that is grammatically correct and culturally acceptable. Xavier has a multi-media computer laboratory dedicated to foreign language education. The goal of language study at XCP is to create not only fluency but also an appreciation of cultural diversity and language in a cultural context. Incoming students who have begun language studies before enrolling at XCP will be required to take a placement test in April in order to determine proper placement. A letter detailing exam content will be included in the registration materials as well as being posted on the Department of Foreign Language web page.
