Center for Arabic Culture - Summer Learning Academy (Grades K1-2)*

The Center for Arabic Culture’s (CAC) Arabic School in New England focuses on both academic empowerment and cultural enrichment activities. Our goal is to equip every student with the tools to speak, read and write Arabic. The CAC Arabic program shares the organization's vision of promoting Arabic culture with no affiliation to any religious or political organizations. The school is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment where diversity is celebrated, where respect will be practiced fostering the academic and cultural development of all students regardless of gender, race or religion. At the program students will develop proficiency in reading, writing, grammar, listening, and in speaking Arabic by actively using the language in interpersonal interpretive, and presentational modes. The program integrates singing and music to attract students and immerse them in learning the language.

Grades Served: 2021-2022 School Year Grades K1-2; 2022-2023 School Year Grades K2-3
