Spanish        

Vision:      

  Through the study of Foreign Language, Grove City Christian students will develop a linguistic skill set that encourages meaningful and culturally appropriate communication with a global mindset and a compassionate heart, realizing that God’s people are connected in many ways regardless of their differences.  

Philosophy  and  Guiding  Biblical  Principles:  

  GCCS Foreign Language Department seeks to open students’ minds not only to language but to cultural studies as well through a Biblical worldview with a global perspective. We will introduce and equip students with beginning and advanced linguistic skills and cultural perspectives. Students will be challenged as they use critical thinking skills, integrate technology, make connections to other disciplines and are offered travel experiences (both local and abroad) to broaden their worldview and shift their focus away from self to others. Our desire is that GCCS students will develop a global mindset and a compassionate heart, realizing that God’s people are connected in many ways regardless of our differences.
