Here at One Day Academy

It is our goal to prepare students to speak, understand, and read & write in a foreign language. We believe that all students can be successful at learning a foreign language, can enjoy communicating in a foreign language, and can progress to the highest levels of that language.


We enjoy working with

bright, eager students as they learn to communicate in everyday situations and expand their horizons through the cultural and historical highlights and get a glimpse of the world as a mission field.


To these ends

we offer courses in Spanish, French, Latin, Biblical Greek and American Sign Language (ASL). Courses begin in the elementary grades and continue through high school. Please see the individual course descriptions for appropriate grade levels and prerequisites.
