Brief Program Description

The World Language Academy offers students at the very earliest stages of public school education the opportunity to engage in the study of world languages and to engage in a dual language immersion program in Spanish. In this world-class educational setting, students in grades Pre-K - 8 learn under the dual immersion model and receive most of their instruction in Spanish while learning Chinese, Portuguese, and French. With the recognition that high school graduates are faced with increased connectivity with people worldwide, adults in this school guide students to become multilingual, multicultural citizens. This outstanding inquiry-based program provides students real-world opportunities to collaborate with business leaders and educators across the globe. Students hone problem solving skills, acquire new languages, and develop new relationships with peers around the world while creating products and business models.
