Welcome to the Global Language and
Leadership Program at El Capitan High School!
The Global Language & Leadership Program at El Capitan High School provides an innovative and rigorous course of study for students who are interested in further developing multiple language proficiencies in high school. Our goal is to provide a dynamic, international perspective to students who wish to continue with rigorous language and cultural studies from their middle schools. El Capitan High School offers a flexible choice of AP courses and content in the target languages of study.
Students are exposed to multiple options for high-level language studies, global issues across all course disciplines, flexible opportunities for study abroad, career internships at the local level, and project-based learning. By pursuing the path of the GLLP, they will exceed the requirements for the UC/CSU system and earn the seal of biliteracy or triliteracy on a specialized diploma upon graduation.
While enrolled in the Global Language & Leadership Program, students can remain involved in a variety of high school
experiences. Schedules will be flexible enough that language immersion students can take a variety of AP classes, while
also participating in athletics, performing and visual arts, ASB, AVID, and CTE. Technology will be an integral component
for all grade levels. Students enrolled in the GLL Program will meet or exceed the UC/CSU requirements for graduation.
