ACA’s Barcelona programs combine a community-service opportunity, a college-level language class, an SAT or ACT prep course or your choice of select enrichment courses. Run by The International College of Barcelona, the language classes benefit from being held in the midst of Barcelona’s Spanish culture, adding depth to the conversation few conventional classrooms can match! Courses are offered only to ACA students, meet five days a week and are graded on a conventional grading system.
Students can earn 3 college credits upon completion of this comprehensive language program. In addition, high schools often grant credit for ACA courses as well. We’ll be happy to work with your school ahead of time to determine whether your ACA coursework qualifies for such credit. The community-service component can be applied toward high school graduation service requirements.
College credits are conferred through Jacksonville University and are transferable to most universities, according to a school’s specific standards. Official university transcripts, including course credit and grades, are available to each ACA student. As an added benefit, ACA’s professors are always happy to write recommendation letters for college.
