Global Learning

A universe of learning awaits at MICDS from world language classes and sister school exchanges to service learning trips and on-campus language immersion camps. Intentional opportunities abound to shape our students as global citizens. Explore our international, domestic and on-campus global learning opportunities below!

World Languages

Communicate as citizens of the world.

We teach four valuable languages at MICDS: Mandarin Chinese, French, Latin and Spanish. Each language contains cultural, linguistic and global qualities that will help MICDS graduates be better equipped with 21st-century skills necessary to appreciate, work and interact with people all over the world. The World Languages Department deems every language offered to be relevant, meaningful and potentially useful throughout one’s lifetime.

Students at MICDS take Spanish from Junior Kindergarten through sixth grade. When entering the seventh grade, they select which language they wish to study in Middle and Upper School.
