Man's greatness consists in his ability to do and the proper application of his powers to things needed to be done....

A natural extension to the primary mission of college preparedness is global awareness for future success. As our world becomes increasingly competitive on a global scale, it is important for students to learn additional language and about other cultures. Students are therefore enrolled in languages to prepare for the world to come.

At the Frederick Douglass Academy students are offered French, Japanese, Latin, and Spanish. In addition to the standard sequence of language, Advanced Placement courses are offered in Latin, French, and Spanish. To extend and compliment what is learned in the classroom, travel opportunities are offered each year to enrich the experience our students have with modern and classical languages.
