These programs promote academic excellence and cultural awareness, and provide the skills necessary for success in a global economy.
Philo offers multiple opportunities for students to learn Mandarin Chinese, the most widely spoken language in the world.
By using interactive whiteboards, foreign language labs and other technology, students connect to a larger world. They not only learn how computers run but use different components to build their own computers. E-mail helps them keep in touch with pen pals in China and Colombia. A foreign language is required as an elective.
