The Spanish Project of the CLA offers a variety of programs designed for and by Spanish teachers in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Since 1984 we have offered institutes, workshops, courses, and in-service days which focus on the content of Spanish and Latin American literature, language, and culture. In addition, we offer a summer course of study in Valencia, Spain along with scholarships to help defray the costs of that program.
