This program is available for Indiana high school students who are juniors and have successfully completed 3 years or more of studies in French, Spanish, or German. Students must go throught a process of applying (with a non-refundable fee), an evaluative exam, and, if they qualify to continue in the process, letters of recommendation and an interview with IU faculty in the spring. This is a 7 week total language immersion program in the summer during which a student lives with a host family speaking only the language of the country and attending morning classes taught by Indiana University faculty. There are also activities and excursions during and after the homestays. Many previous Columbus North participants have scored high on AP Language exams and university placement tests. This is a life-altering experience ! Interested students should contact Mrs. Lahee (the CNHS liaison) in Room 183. Enrollment procedures and dates will be announced in the fall when information arrives from Indiana University.
