We combine bilingual education, intimate private school setting, and holistic values-based education. Discover find out why a Dual Language Immersion education is a fit for your child!
What is Dual Language Immersion?
In Dual Language Immersion, students spend half the day learning in English and half the day learning in Spanish. By being taught not just language fundamentals but academic subjects, students gain both languages while not losing a step in their studies. In addition, by speaking English and Spanish at an early age, our students are more likely to remember both languages forever. Dual Language Immersion addresses the needs of the 21st century world. You will see the benefits of Dual Language Immersion for native English and Spanish speakers alike. We are one of the only private Catholic Elementary Schools to offer Dual Language Immersion as well as one of the few to do so in California. This program adds to our educational plan, which offers our students a rich core academic curriculum as well as enrichment programs such as art, athletics, music and afterschool activities. A bilingual education is achievable for your child!
