Arabic Year at King’s Academy (AY) offers high school students one year of intensive Arabic language study, Middle Eastern cultural immersion and experiential learning.
The program is designed for students in grades 10 through 12 who want to learn Arabic and explore the history, politics and culture of a vital part of the world. Students enrolled in AY are part of King’s Academy, an American-style boarding school in Jordan modeled after Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts.
AY allows students to gain fluency in Arabic, soak in the history and culture of the Middle East and “learn by doing” through off-campus educational excursions in Jordan and the region. Students accepted into the AY program must be committed to the work necessary to access a difficult language.
