Welcome to the Forte' International Academy of Music and Language!
Founded by our Director, Mary S. Reinker, and located 20 miles south of Denver and near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the Forté International Academyoffers the opportunity for students ages 13-18 from around the globe to meet and live with students from different countries who share an interest in music and outdoor activities, while learning and improving their English language skills.
Students stay with American host families and spend 3 hours/day in intensive English classes and 3 hours/day pursuing their musical interests on the instrument of their choice in private lessons and group settings. Students have the opportunity to perform in formal and informal venues, and also hear other students, as well as professionals, perform.
The faculty at Forté Academy is highly trained and experienced in their fields.
Students experience American western culture in a safe and beautiful mountain setting—Colorado and the gorgeous Rocky Mountains! Opportunities for outdoor activities abound, including skiing, hiking, golf, tennis, swimming, and horseback riding, as well as attending professional baseball or football games. A sports program may be substituted for or included in the music program. Time for shopping can also be found.
Students gain maturity and confidence by traveling internationally and living in a different culture. Students gain a better understanding of Americans and also give American teens a better understanding of other world cultures.
