Academic Calendar

Arab Academy offers semester long, summer and monthly programs that run year round. Classes are held Sunday through Thursday, except on national holidays.

Summer Programs

Students who enroll in Summer Sessions 1 and 2 will have 20 hours of Arabic lessons per week plus go on outings (during and outside of class time) with teachers, giving them an opportunity to practice Arabic in real situations with native speakers. The total cost of the summer program is $995.
