School of Italian Language and Culture
The School of Italian Language and Culture began in 1976 with one language class for 21 children and a small grant from the Nova Scotia Government. Today we have over 15 teachers and offer up to 24 courses to over 350 students throughout Atlantic Canada.
The school's operation and expansion over the past fifteen years has been made possible by a grant from the the Italian Government. Without this generous support, the programs that we offer would not be possible.
