If you're motivated to learn Swedish, and you're entering grades 9-12, the High School Credit Program at Sjölunden is a great choice for you!

Villagers in four-week high school credit-bearing sessions gain an academic year’s worth of Swedish language and culture skills through an immersion experience embedded in daily life, featuring a variety of cultural activities as well as formal study and assessment (minimum of 180 instructional hours; accredited by AdvancEd). Emphasis is on literacy and oracy. Open to all proficiency levels.
