Middle School Program
Grade: 7-8

Thetford Academy offers French I and Spanish I as a two-year program in the middle school. Students may start language studies as 7th graders and continue in 8th grade, covering the equivalent of a French I or Spanish I course in two full years of study. Students will need to complete both years successfully in order to advance to the second level as 9th graders. They will not receive high school credit, but will be able to enroll directly in French II or Spanish II. Please refer to the French I and Spanish I descriptions that follow. Middle School languages teach students the skills to be successful language learners, and places importance on projects, interactive games, and activities.
