Italian School NJ is excited to announce the introduction of both group and private lessons for high school students interested in bolstering their Italian skills outside of the classroom.
This particular program is best suited to the high school student who is interested in transitioning into higher-level Italian classes, improving their grades in their current Italian class, or to those who need extra assistance outside of a classroom setting.

classes start again in feb. Our team of highly qualified instructors, some of whom teach or have taught at the high school level, is also excited to assist in preparation for the AP Italian exam.

Italian School NJ takes a particularly spherical approach to instruction, which allows students a unique opportunity to engage in every aspect of the Italian language.

As lessons take place exclusively in Italian, each student will have the opportunity to practice their Italian conversation skills, while expanding their vocabulary and knowledge of Italian grammar. These particular preparatory sessions would also include a range of listening activities, writing prompts and responses, and conversational response activities that comprise a large portion of the exam.

If your student is interested in an intensive prep course and a 4 or a 5 on the AP exam, this is the course for you.

High School classes meet once a week. Italian School NJ offers:

  • – a Fall semester that starts the first week of October and ends in mid-or end of February
  • – a Late Fall semester that starts in Mid-November and ends in mid-March.
