World Language Exemption Exam
Tuesday, May 9 at 3:00 p.m.
This is for students who are currently enrolled in or have already completed the first level of a world language.
Students enrolled in a Diocesan grade school will take the test at their own school on Tuesday May 9. Students who are enrolled in a public or other private school must come to Bishop O'Connell on May 9.

In addition to taking the placement test, all Spanish Heritage speakers must come for an interview with Mrs. Rubio. This means that if your student attends a diocesan school, he/she will also need to come to Bishop O'Connell to take the Heritage Speakers portion of the placement test.

Non-diocesan students should also have their language teacher submit a letter of recommendation to Adriene Cunningham, Chair of World Languages, Bishop O'Connell HS, Arlington VA 22213. If you have any questions, please contact Adriene Cunningham, acunningham@bishopoconnell.org.
