Dear teachers and counselors -

Every year at this time of the year we reach out to you to kindly ask you to promote this early college program among your students. We'd be really grateful if you could support this effort by also reaching out to other teachers and counselors you know. This so far remains the only program in Italian in the U.S. that allows high school students to experience college life, earn credits in advance and be more prepared for AP and advanced courses. We thank you for your help at a time in which joining forces to support Italian (and foreign languages at large) at any level of the education system is more important than ever.

Please reach out with questions and comments.
Cordiali saluti e grazie!
Teresa Fiore
