Our Mission

Cape International Language Academy (CILA) seeks to empower our international community on Cape Cod to participate fully in the local economy through world-class language instruction; to provide foreign language instruction to English-speaking business owners, health care professionals, law enforcement, and first responders; to enable English speakers to engage with people from other cultures using different languages, both locally and abroad. 

In summary, Cape International Language Academy seeks to contribute to a more inclusive community on Cape Cod, and to promote global communication and cross-cultural understanding.
