  APS Receives Grants for Summer Chinese and Arabic Classes
 
Arlington Public Schools has been awarded two STARTALK foreign language grants to help fund the STARTALK Summer Program in Chinese and Arabic for Grades 4-5 and the STARTALK Summer Program in Chinese and Arabic for Grades 6-12. This is the sixth consecutive year that APS has received STARTALK funding and the first year that two grants have been awarded to the school division.

STARTALK is a federally-funded program established by the National Security Initiative to expand foreign language education in under-taught critical languages.

APS will be offering three-week intensive summer programs in Arabic and Chinese from July 9-27. Registration begins March 1 for both programs.
