Projects with High Schools


We are excited to be offering a brand-new program, which seamlessly links the high school and college learning experience. Offered in July 2017, this full-immersion three-week course in Italian language and culture is open to rising seniors enrolled in NJ, NY and CT high schools. A great preparation for senior advanced/AP Italian courses and AP exam, it offers 3 college credits while still attending HS through the dual enrollment program at Montclair State University.

2. Workshops for HS Students

The Inserra is working in partnership with local high schools so that qualified students can participate in select cultural programs. These activities are unique opportunities for HS students to be exposed to Italian culture through well-known artists and also to interact with university students and professors.

An example of these programs is the theatre workshop with the pluri awarded Italian company Le Albe that took place on February 4, 2014.

3. On Campus Visits

On campus visits are regularly offered through the Admission Office (click here for details).

The Inserra Chair and the Italian Program are please to welcome individual students and whole classes for targeted tours and meetings with students and professors of Italian.

For example, on April 25, 2016 a group of students of Italian from St. Peter’s Prep, NJ, and Italian students from Gonzaga High, Palermo, Italy, visited our campus as part of their exchange program. Both professors and students of the Italian Program at Montclair State University welcomed them as they toured the facilities and learned about the academic offerings on campus.

Their positive reaction speaks to the evergrowing opportunities offered to local and foreign students interested in combining Italian and other academic subjects for their undergraduate studies at our university.
