The German program at Providence High School was recently selected as one of only a few PASCH programs worldwide, a designation straight from Berlin, Germany, for student success in the National German Exam and more.
The PASCH designation is coordinated by the Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany. The goal of the initiative, also known as “Schools: Partners for the Future,” is to build a network of exceptionally high achieving partner schools worldwide who have a link to Germany and to awaken young people’s interest in, and enthusiasm for, German society and language.
Providence High is one of three schools in the state to attain the designation. A ceremony for the designation was held at the school April 19.
Jenny Hausler, a student at Providence, also was awarded an all-expense-paid summer study trip to Germany for her score on the Level II 2012 National German Exam. Jenny is one of 44 German students from across the United Stated to receive the award, which includes round-trip air transportation to Germany from New York, a home-stay with a host family and excursions to places of cultural and historical significance.
