Lang arts  

The English program is designed to guide the student through a challenging and diversified literaturebased

curriculum. An emphasis on the development of rudimentary language skills is a core component

of the curriculum. This emphasis will include direct and contextual vocabulary study and exercises in

usage and mechanics. SAT preparation is embedded in the curriculum. Students will study a number of

literary genres, viewing each as an art form with its respective conventions and contributions to the world

of literature. Students will also be encouraged to critically and creatively question the issues and themes

of the various works and to respond in a variety of ways, including oral reports, large-group and smallgroup

discussions, and projects. In learning about the relationship between reading and writing, students

will be actively involved in the writing process.
