World Languages

The World Language department at COHS teaches Spanish 1 to 5 and French 1 to 4.  All COHS students are required to take two years of one foreign language.  The majority of our students go on to study for a third year, fulfilling one requirement for the NYS Advanced Regents Diploma.  Many of our students continue their studies with the Level 4 and 5 curriculum, where they can earn college credit through NCCC, taught here at O'Hara.

Incoming freshman who wish to challenge the Spanish 1 or French 1 courses will have the opportunity to demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the language through a placement test given at COHS in May.
