The 2019 Arabic Summer Academy begins on July 1 and ends on July 20. The program runs Monday through Saturday each week (with the exception of July 4) and runs from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM each day. The schedule includes time for breakfast and lunch, three Arabic language and culture classes, and a midday period with a special cultural focus. Students should expect to spend about an hour on homework every night. Students who complete the requirements and maintain excellent attendance are invited to a graduation ceremony with performances on the final day.
