Welcome to World Languages

World Languages: Students’ Passport to the World


The OCPS World Languages Department is dedicated to preparing students to thrive in a 21st century global society through second language acquisition.  We empower students to communicate proficiently in a foreign language and to develop diverse cultural perspectives that expand their world view.


Students can partake in a range of modern and classical languages (i.e Latin), including American Sign Language. Our rigorous curriculum aligns with the Florida State Standards for World Languages, adopted in 2014, and provides an outline for what each student should know and be able to do.


Please Note: As of 2016, students who become proficient in a second language, in addition to English may be eligible to receive the Florida Seal of Biliteracy upon graduation, which distinguishes students for higher education and future employment.
