The World Language Department strives for intercultural communication and understanding through the study of Spanish. Clearwater Central Catholic High School promotes the dignity and worth of other people by teaching students to communicate in a language other than English, by helping our students gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures, and by familiarizing with multilingual communities at home and around the world.
