At Excel High School, we recognize the crucial role of language in bridging cultures and unlocking new opportunities. Therefore, we provide specialized online courses in English, French, and American Sign Language (ASL), available as part of our standard, honors, and AP curriculum or as standalone options for students seeking to focus on a single language. Each course is carefully designed to not only offer high school credit but also to deeply engage students in the linguistic and cultural nuances of each language, allowing them to expand their horizons with us.
