Three students from The Potomac School have been honored with invitations to attend Governor’s Foreign Language Academies, sponsored by the Virginia Department of Education. This summer, junior Ellen Oskoui, sophomore Kat Plaza, and sophomore Sarah Raman will attend the Latin Academy, the French Academy, and the Spanish Academy, respectively.
The Governor’s Foreign Language Academies are summer residential programs for students who have distinguished themselves as being talented, motivated, and passionate language learners. All candidates must take a language test and place among the top scorers in the state in order to participate. More than 8,750 students have completed these programs since VDOE began sponsoring them in 1987.
