“”Being able to take AP Italian and enriching my knowledge of the language and culture has not only been beneficial now, but will assist me in my future. After studying classical voice for six years, having a background in Italian helps me to understand and connect with the text and style of the pieces I perform.” Christine T., NJ Student

“As an Italian teacher at one of the premiere arts high schools in the country, AP Italian is a vital course in the pursuit of a well-rounded arts education. In the spring of 2019, students found out that AP Italian was not going to be offered the following school year. Thanks to the strong support of the Italian Language Foundation, not only was our AP Italian class restored, but our Level One offerings were expanded. We are proud to teach and share the language with our students.” -Antonette Laricchia, Teacher of Italian at LaGuardia High School

“I chose to take Italian because it was a language that always struck me as beautiful and I have always wanted to learn it. Looking towards the future, learning different languages from around the world along with working on Italian up to the AP level will undoubtedly help me with my tentative college major, business.” Max N. – NJ Student

“I fought to introduce AP Italian to my school and I therefore intend to become the best AP Italian teacher possible so as to make my students’ hard work and dedication worthwhile. I am truly grateful to the Italian Language Foundation for funding my participation in a College Board workshop as I would not have been able to attend without their support.” Professor Patti Grunther, M.A. Teacher of Italian language and culture, Watchung Hills Regional HS Association of American Teachers of Italian Mid-Atlantic Regional Representative
