On Friday, April 10, the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF), notified the Language Department that the Choate French Program application has been reviewed and received the designation of Exemplary Program with Honors.
In 2014, the AATF instituted an award to honor a select number of Exemplary Programs in schools across the country. Individuals programs must submit an extensive application outlining its deep curriculum, articulating the various interactive elements of courses taught; study abroad opportunities offered, and testimonials of support from parents, as well as current and past students. Applications are then reviewed for consideration by the ATTF evaluation committee. Choate's email notification read, in part, "You have an outstanding program, and we congratulate you on your success." The Language Department will receive the designation plaque and a certificate to be presented to Dr. Curtis at a future date.
