Cultural Enrichment

The cultural enrichment program is designed for students seeking to develop and enhance their English language skills while living in the United States. Students engage in a variety of experiences and exercises in which they are given opportunities to learn through conversation, reading, and writing.

This unique program offers students the chance to design their own schedules, based on individual educational goals throughout the year. Our program is ideal for au pairs, international students, and non-native English speakers who are interested in new educational experiences in a college environment, allowing them to study a variety of subjects.

All classes are held on the University of Richmond campus and taught by highly qualified instructors who utilize a variety of educational methods to lead effective and rewarding class sessions. The total number of hours for course completion includes in-class instruction, as well as some work and assignments to be completed at home.

No language proficiency exams are required for this program. SPCS staff and instructors reserve the opportunity to recommend placement in appropriate levels where necessary, based on student levels of English proficiency and skills. We want to ensure that all students derive the maximum benefit from the course.
