The Golden Globe Award is presented by the Pennsylvania State Modern Language Association (PSMLA), recognizing the Carlynton Junior-Senior High School as one in an elite group of exemplary foreign language programs.

PSMLA validates and showcases high quality Pennsylvania high school language programs. It also provides school districts with materials to spur improvements that will have a measurable effect on the learning outcomes of students. The ultimate aim of PSMLA is to promote and propagate best practices in language programs across the state.

The Carlynton Foreign Language Department was recognized for a number of indicator achievements, including the Dual Enrollment programs in both Spanish and French. Through a partnership with local universities who have approved the curriculum, students can earn college credits while in high school, saving hundreds of dollars.

The seventh and eighth grade World Language Exploratory programs also received commendations as well as the department's administration of the SOPI (Simulated Oral Proficiency Interview) which assesses fluency.

Teacher engagement was another factor to receive recognition. All Foreign Language teachers attend local, state or national world language professional development activities. Engaging opportunities are also provided to students, including Mystery Skypes with students in other countries and travel options to the Yucatan Peninsula. Again this summer, 22 students will travel to Mexico for a life-changing experience.
